Day Three: “Scale” -Experiment with Size
Today I decided to take a photo of a shelf that has some of my wife’s collectables. She is a Catholic and very devoted to the church, thankfully not as much as a Nunn. They are different in size. In the plastic on the right is Jesus carrying the cross. Even the shelf it sits on was hand made by a local carpenter. Each evening a candle is lit and put out by whoever wakes first.
We must remember that these items, no matter the size, represent something much greater than ourselves. Never allow someone to say that these are false idols that we as Christians and Catholics worship. These only represent what we worship, Jesus and Mary. Every room in my house has a cross or rosary hanging in it. A constant reminder of what real sacrifice is.
