Good Friday Tradition - By Gloria Mendoza

Contributed by

Been up since 5:00 a.m. Today is my Lenten meal day. Here's my menu: Beans w/chicos, salmon patties (rellenos de pescado) w/green chile, torrejas w/red chile, quelites (spinach), macaroni w/tomato and cheese, calabasitas (zucchini squash w/corn), sopa w/caramel syrup and capiratoda (sopa w/a milk syrup), peach dessert. This is a traditional meal I grew up with every Holy Thursday and Good Friday. My mother would cook for two days. She would bring out her small glass scalloped dessert dishes and serve everything she made in individual dish, cover the food with a clean, new tea towel and cover the food with it. She set all these up on a tray. The recipients of our meal would then clean each dish and fill them up with what they cooked for that day and send to our home. A tradition which has died and which I try to keep alive. I am now teaching my granddaughters and daughter-in-laws our tradition and recipes. At twelve o'clock sharp we stop all we are doing and pray the rosary. For 3 hours nobody in my house can here music, watch TV, and concentrate on the crucifixion of Our Lord and thank HIM for dying for our sins. This, my friends, are the traditions I grew up knowing. I try to pass all this on to my family. God bless your families as we ready for the resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ. HAPPY EASTER! ✝

DeForest and Neil Lord, 1909

Contributed by

In 1900, my great-grandparents Charles Norvall and Marietta Phelps Lord arrived in Santa Fe with their two sons, DeForest (5) and Neil (3,) where Charles established a dental practice.  He had followed his older brother Frank, who was a thriving dentist in Las Vegas, from Sackets Harbor, New York, .

Charles did well in Santa Fe, becoming the territorial Secretary of the Board of Dental Examiners in 1905.  In 1907, he was accused by Marietta of infidelity with his dental assistant, which led to a bitter divorce.  Charles left Santa Fe and Marietta married her divorce attorney, Alois B. Renehan in 1909.

This photo is of my grandfather, DeForest, and my great-uncle, Neil, taken in 1909.  Neil was adopted by Alois, but DeForest chose to remain a Lord.
