LEBANON – Jeita Grotto & Harissa (Day 4)

Day One.

Days Two-Three.

They don’t allow pictures in the Grotto (you have to locker your phone) — but you can hear a bit about it on the Orthodixie Podcast. And, someone took some pics! Go here: http://tinyurl.com/y74h77mv

“The Guardian of Time”, a sculpture by Lebanese artist Tony Farah outside the lower cave at Jeita.

The “Time Machine” outside Jeita Grotto.

The Maronite Shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon (Santa Maria) Harissa.

I was a bit confused as to why all these Muslim girls at the Shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon wore the same outfit. “It’s a school outing,” my daughter said.

For Roman Catholics, May is the Month of Mary — hence the flags.

Forgive me: out of “uniform”.
