Rosalba is my aunt. The woman who holds me in her arms when I most need it.  She is also part of a Catholic cult  in Bogota, that targets elderly women, widowed or lonely to gain their confidence  and hoard their properties. In the 15 years that my aunt Rosalba has been part of this cult, many things have changed: her way of dressing, her aspirations, her way of living. To take pictures of her is a way to fight against de cult.

 

In the great live screening, Pope Francis is seen leaving the stage after a three-hour ceremony.

 

The pope Francisco crosses the multitude of people that who greets him.

I can feel her love everywhere and anytime. The way she cares about me expresses through little details like here, where she gently folds my dress like she’s giving a caress.

 

Mrs. Miralba, is how she is known in the religious community that she leads in the south of Bogota. Her religious community resembles a cult, where believers must listen without criticism and believe when she assures that she is the direct link to God.

    Can’t see much information or whether she is a nun so taken a vow of poverty. 🌷🌸

    I could not tell from the story wether Alba was being taken advantage of or also joining in with taking advantage of other women or both. It is an interesting very sad story.
