cura sin cabeza…

Update on the headless priest from the previous post…

The story of the “cura sin cabeza” or the headless priest is resonant throughout this part of Colombia…A priest from a small country parish was travelling the countryside preaching when he was killed for the precious sacrament cups he carried with him.

Another version is that the aforementioned priest stole the sacramental cup himself when he was officiating at a large parish, with the excuse that he had to go to the countryside to take confession at the home of a young rich woman with whom he spent the night. While there his sacramental cup was stolen…so now he roams the streets (why headless i don’t know???) looking for his stolen cup…Nice…
