If you have been to the Spanish Missions around San Antonio, you know how awe-inspiring the structures are. Have you ever studied the structures closely? Consider that they were built by the local natives under the supervision of just a couple of first, Jesuit, and then Franciscan priests exactly 300 years ago.
Study the rock walls. Look at the arches. Think about chipping the rocks, one at a time, finding just the right one to fit into place. Think about getting the rocks to stay in place without concrete. Look at the height of the bell towers. The architectural construction is truly astounding.
Amazing to think that those missions could just as easily have disappeared over the centuries. The local residents could have stolen all the rocks for their own homes. That they didn’t and that the missions are still there, is a testament to the people who still inhabit the area.
