The tabernacle is empty, the altar is bare, and the fonts are drained of holy water. At
Saint Gabriel the Archangel Church
, in Saint Louis, Missouri.
Jesuit missionary Crucifix, dating from 1888, at the
Old Saint Ferdinand Shrine
, in Florissant, Missouri, the church
where Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne lived
. When I was a young child, I think it was this very crucifix which made me first realize that Jesus was executed, and not just humiliated on the cross. Photo taken in 2006.
