Penguins at the Cross

“Taken in Antarctica where I was so moved by the moment. Upon reflection, I now imagine the penguins to be the three at the foot of the cross—now even more moving, especially during Holy Week.”

    • Denise, off topic, but not… I consistently find that when I use one of the share buttons above, today I Tweeted first, I cannot use any of the others, nothing ever comes up. It is consistent, I have closed the post, closed browser and re-opened (inner former software troubleshooter lives on!) etc, but it is consistent. Just fyi, as it may impair some sharing.

  1. Marie, I too am deeply touched and moved by your picture. They too wait at the foot of The Cross. As I see it, Jesus`Death was to save not only mankind but also all of God`s creation: it is man`s (male and female) sin tha causes innocent creatures to suffer so terribly. I pray the new heaven and the new earth will come about soon. Thank you.
