Crucifix Statue at the National Shrine Grotto

We have meandered down the pathway to the very end at the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The path takes a steep turn and goes up steps and ends at a shrine to Jesus on the Cross in a lovely setting surrounded by rhododendrons. Here we find many rolled up rhododendron leaves rolled up and made into crosses near the statue in tribute.
