More Faith from Cordoba

Cordoba Synagogue6
Just up the street and around the corner is the remnant of a very ancient synagogue dating back before the 15th Century when Spain was under the control of the Moors yet had one of the most religiously diverse cultures in history.

Fourth Wednesday of Lent 2008

It had rained a little bit before we came across this statue in a park in Cadiz. I looked at it and knew this had to be a picture of a crying saint.

Contrasts of Faiths

Cordoba Mezquita3
Looking up to the Cathedral built on top of this ancient Mosque you see the Virgin and Child. The attempt of one to outdo the other is nothing new in our modern and postModern world.

Third Wednesday of Lent 2008

In the Cathedral in Seville are nooks and crannies with the most interesting sights. Here is a cross over a baptismal, basic symbols of who we are as Christians.

Second Wednesday of Lent 2008

When you are in Spain, just look around and you will find the cross. It is part of the underlying culture and world view. This was in Cadiz, Spain.

Ash Wednesday 2008

We were in Spain right after Holy Week and Easter and the symbols were still highlighted such as this tiled wall mural shows with the burnt candles. I thought this was appropriate for today, Ash Wednesday, 2008.

Flowers in the Courtyard

Cordoba Flower Wall5
Flowers everywhere. This is a courtyard just off one of the small streets in Cordoba, Spain. The angle of the sun and the white wall added a depth and interest to the picture.
