Should we go deeper into the presence of different colors, within LatinX communities, we are sure to gain incite into the myriad personal, treasures, and cultures of LatinX communities. What are the spiritual understandings, within such communities? Of course, Catholicism is the foundational presence of LatinX communities. Simultaneously, it makes you wonder how these cultures (and nations) of people add their own Spanish flair to this institution. What has been birthed within such lands? Furthermore, how have they contributed to the legacy and cultural treasure of such lands?
Food. Music. Festivities. Architecture. Dance. Attire. The list goes on and on and on. Of course, we comprehend the treasures of the Spanish language.
