RE: Christian Travel Destinations
Ave Maria Grotto

It's in North Alabama in one of the backwood towns I lived in growing up.

It's basically a bunch of trash glued together over 50 years by a hunchback monk at St. Bernard (pronounced like ber-nerd, cause heaven forbid it sound like the dog) to look like historic religious buildings.

Jesus On a Hospital Door

Interesting Consider but but ...did u see Jesus?!!

Heh, well, I could see what resembled a person's face. I wasn't terribly impressed. Maybe it's just because I don't believe. Maybe Jesus was withholding the revelation of his glory from me.

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart

My father went to St. Bernard college in the 1950’s, played on the football team.

When my parent’s married they took a ferry from Havana to Miami then drove to St. Bernard. I may have been conceived there Weeping

Any silly ones in your state?


I wouldn't mind going there with some dark brown paint -- to color Jesus in properly......

I'm sure they'd appreciate it...

Your testimony is awesome.

Not really a religious spot, but might be worth seeing just to challenge God. Deadly curve of crosses. "If Brakes Fail, Ditch Truck Immediately."

Maybe they could just try and do something to fix the curve instead of putting up more crosses Shocking

I think the other side of the retaining wall is a drop off so no real way to fix it. They did build a runaway truck ramp in 2005. The current advice to truckers is to use an alternate route to get to Luke, MD (although it's not clear why anyone would be going to 0.25 sq mile population 65 Luke, MD in the first place).

Tours available...I grew up in the shadow of this monstrosity. Have been up in the steeples though that was strongly discouraged. Probably where my fear of heights comes from.

If in the area, I would suggest this instead...

Both built because of a fantasy but I put more faith into Field of Dreams. I actually know some of the ghost players. Tongue

Brain is misfiring this morning...posted in the wrong thread...then wondered where it was...must have inhaled too much chlorine when cleaning the pool this morning. Undecided
