stone cross

“This photo of a cross was taken nearing Nasbinals, partway across the Aubrac Plateau in France, along el Camino de Santiago de Compostela. There were many crosses in the landscape in this part of France, and the stones at the base of this one would have been placed by pilgrims walking past. This area is at quite a high altitude, and the weather here can be quite bad at times, but this day was very warm, and that made walking quite a challenge!”

I like the mottled stone. With a little imagination, those white sh spots look like beautiful flowers growing all over the cross.It now being Lent I hope, all our sacrifices, sufferings, offerings, etc. are like those flowers or even precious jewels that beautify our own daily cross. Thank you Margaret.
