First, I walk through the lower portion. I followed the path that went through the stations of the cross
|Station 1: Jesus is condemned to death.|
Then I walked into into the center part and there was this beautiful Chapel. Inside it looked like a mini cathedral. It was very lovely.
|It seemed to me that it was too small to be considered a chapel.|
|Every where you look there is a hidden area with something else to look at. Jesus carries his cross.|
|I didn't know what this was when I first saw it, but a small sign revealed that it is an elevator that takes you to the upper garden. Very cool.|
|This is the view from the top. I don't know if you can tell but there are two spires in the center of the picture, that is where Andrew was at his conference.|
The Upper part includes the peace garden.
|I love the part of this plaque that invites us to find peace by entering deeply, personally, and genuinely, into the mystery of the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.|
As you walk through you are able to see visually the mysteries of Christ.
|This was just too big to get a decent picture. It is a prayer and meditation labyrinth.|
|How pretty is that waterfall.|
|I took this picture to give an idea of how high the upper portion of the gardens stood. |
Having a wonderful time in Portland and looking forward to another good night sleep.
