Liz I think it is a list of guidelines for male behavior on the convent grounds!

Hello, Jim, do YOU know what the sign says? Haha. I'd like to know, myself. This is a neat capture of shapes and tones. Well done. Regards, liz

The Sign

I was in this place a couple of months ago and I actually have a closeup of this sign, which I used to get the wording:

Original Sign in very old Spanish (no spacing bet. words):

ALABADOSELSANTISIMOSACRA
MDELATARILALINPIACONSEF
SIONDENVESTRASERNORACON
SEVIDASINMANCHANIDEVD
ADEPECADOORIGINALALMEN--
JOESVS MARCAIJOSEF--

In modern Spanish:

ALABADO SEA EL SANTÍSIMO SACRA-
MENTO DEL ALTAR Y LA LIMPIA CONFE-
CION DE NUESTRA SEÑORA CON-
CEBIDA SIN MANCHA NI DEU-
DE DE PECADO ORIGINAL, AMÉN.
JESÚS, MARÍA Y JOSÉ.

I tried to translate it but I'm not good at that. It actually praises the act of confession of virgin Mary who was conceived without the stain nor the debpt of the original sin.
