In Honor of Easter

High in the Andes mountains the glory and memory of the sacrifice Jesus Christ made is celebrated. The Fiesta de las Cruces is celebrated on the 3rd of May each year. Decorated, these crosses are included in parades for all to enjoy.

Palms molded into decorative arrangements are placed to welcome those who enter on Palm Sunday in Spain.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A man who was completely innocent,

offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others,

including his enemies,

and became the ransom of the world.

It was a perfect act.

Mahatma Gandhi

  1. Gandhi has a way of saying simple words and the statement can create a huge impact. Happy Easter, Emily. The Andes people sure know how to use colours. Lovely photos.

  2. I love the picture of the crosses. The quote is extra special for me, because I love Jesus very much. Bless you.
