It is raining today in Portland, Oregon. But that does not stop anyone here from going outdoors. It did not stop me either.
I went into the city to visit The Grotto, The National Sanctuary of Mary, the mother of Jesus. A place of “solitude, peace, and prayer.”
The paths through the lush gardens and tall trees are intermingled with shrines from different countries, the grotto, religious scultpures, reflecting pools, a meditation chapel and a labyrinth.
Thankful for this day of reflection and meditation on the paths, the labyrinth and in the meditation chapel of The Grotto ~
