At the entrance of the San Francisco El Grande Church, burial home of Santo Hermano Pedro de Betancourt, you can find this stall of candles. We visited the entrance of this church before with with Monk in San Francisco El Grande Church and The Guatemalan Chevere Hot Dog Cart.
This time the lady was calling out the following: “Se venden velas, velas, velas para el Hermano Pedro, velas para el Santo Hermano Pedro,” like a song she sang it over and over again. Heck, I can still hear it in my head.
