    One year before he beatified Fray Junípero Serra in , St. John Paul II made a pilgrimage to the grave of the Franciscan priest at Mission San Carlos Borroméo in Carmel, Calif. Standing on the site of Serra’s former missionary headquarters, the pope reflected on . Led by the zealous Fray Junipero Serra to the fringes of the Spanish Empire in the mids, Franciscan missionaries Francisco Palou and Juan Crespi are as fervid as their master about the opportunity posed by Alta California: to gloriously swell the kingdom of God through conversion--consensual or forced--of the native people.

    The result is a oil painting, "Father Junípero Serra receiving the viaticum" by Mariano Guerrero, in which Serra has dragged himself near death to the chapel to receive his final communion.   Hackel’s new book, “Junípero Serra: California’s Founding Father” (Hill and Wang) — which coincides with the th anniversary of Serra’s birth — chronicles the life and legacy of the Franciscan missionary, and depicts an experience of colonization that differs significantly from that of the original 13 colonies.

      The painting is awash in the colors of California’s ocean-side landscape — blues, golds and greens. In her own blog about the painting, Norton wrote of Father Serra, “He is the story of persevering in what we believe in.” Norton’s colorful painting stands in stark contrast to a portrait the turns up every time his name is Googled. In Norton’s painting, Blessed Serra holds a cross and walking stick and is surrounded by representations of nine missions he established. Along his robe, the California coast is demarcated with a splash of blue. A rooster at his feet is a nod to his early rise and the long hours he labored.
