On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at all kinds of things not readily seen.

Grotto of the Redemption

This is a unique place. It happens to be where I grew up although I define myself as a Rodman boy rather than from West Bend,Iowa.  The 7 min video describes better than what I can much of what is going on here. It's approaching a 100 year  birthday but was started ten years before that.

Some of the pictures have been around before but not all. There has not been a time hardly at all when visiting that I did not stop at the Grotto. Lived two blocks away and the town is 850 or so. It doesn't get old and is a great place to take pictures as well.

The stories that can be told I tell you. This was a play ground for this kid. The video is really good and I bet there were a few offended by a couple things in it. The pictures help bring it to life.

  1. If I ever get down that way, I'd love to stop. It looks like a great place for photo opps. I can imagine what fun it would be as a kid. I try not to judge how others choose to go through life. There's a lot of ways to finding grace in our lives. This one's a bit too dogmatic for me, but it sure is rich with tradition and images that are really quite beautiful when they stand alone. Thanks, Tom.
