2021 THEME:

THE RETURN OF QUETZALCOATL - EL REGRESO DE QUETZALCOATL

From the flames of death and destruction we look to the Quetzal bird, the phoenix of the Americas, rising from the ashes, reborn.

Adorned in the feathers of the Quetzal we welcome the Return of Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent, ancient God of the Mayans and Aztecs, Priest King, Lord of the Winds and the Harvest Maize – that seed of civilizations – and the One God who descends into the underworld and resurrects humankind with his own blood.

With his wise old face wreathed in brilliant feathers he tells us, “I am Quetzalcoatl, the Morning Star. Every morning, I lead the Sun back out of Mictlán to be reborn with the dawn. I know the way out of the Land of Death and will guide us back.”

Friar Diego de Duran believed Quetzalcoatl was the traveling Apostle St. Thomas after the crucifixion. The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints claimed that he was their Savior in the Americas.

Our finely feathered serpent is a Universal Divine symbol for all those who crave resurrection.

Together, we witness the Rebirth of the Phoenix Quetzal.

Together, we invoke the Return of Quetzalcoatl.
