Rare book takes long journey to museum
#1 May 2, 2009
The Manualito de Parrocos, the bilingual (Latin-Spanish) ritual that Padre Martinez published on his press in 1839, at almost sixty pages, is almost twice as long as the speller that had been already published on that press that he soon came to own. It is a treasure not only for publishers, printers and book enthusiasts, but also for people interested in Catholic liturgy. Bilingual rituals (for funerals, weddings, and Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) have become commonplace only within the past forty years. Indeed, he was "way ahead of his time," as has noted Msgr. Jerome Martinez, pastor of St. Francis Cathedral-Basilica in Santa Fe.

The snippet has me in "Cranston, Rhode Island." I actually reside for the most part in Palm Springs. The online archives of the state of New Mexico has my treatment on the MANUALITO DE PARROCOS, a bilngual (Latin-Spanish) ritual/handbook for the administration of sacraments by parish priests.
