The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament is a house of prayer open to people of every faith. All are welcome. Ran by the Poor Clares of perpetual Adoration. (thanks, Google!)
This photo was taken by my uncle, Cris Bingham, in his hometown of Cullman, Alabama at The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Cris and Kathy have this photo framed on a 24×36 canvas and it’s displayed in their home in Louisville, Kentucky. The art is simply stunning and I’m so excited to share, especially since it is authentic photography from a really cool, and talented, family member!
Known throughout the world as “Jerusalem in Miniature,” is a beautifully landscaped, four-acre park designed to provide a natural setting for the 125 miniature reproductions of some of the most famous historic buildings and shrines of the world. The masterpieces of stone and concrete are the lifetime work of Brother Joseph Zoettl, a Benedictine monk of St. Bernard Abbey. Begun as a hobby, with various materials he could find, and infinite patience and a remarkable sense of symmetry and proportion, Brother Joseph re-created some of the greatest edifices of all time.
