Photo of the Week
April 20, 2003
|With Easter time here, I
thought this photo be fitting for the season. I took this photo on
my recent trip to Panama while visiting the old town of Porto Bello.
This is the famous Black Christ that saved the town from a Cholera
epidemic many years ago. With this event, the Black Christ has been
worshipped each year since then. The church the statue stands in
is equally impressive. The life size statue is in a glass enclosure
to protect it from the elements. Each year a new robe is selected
to clothe him. There is a display in the old Porto Bello custom
house where all the past robes can be seen. They wouldn't let us
take pictures in there.
May the Easter Season bring many
blessings to you and your family. Remember to always "Keep
the Son in your eyes".
