    Hey guys just thought I’d pass along this very cool place my family and I went to on mother’s day. It is called the Shrine of christ’s Passion, it is an interactive half mile prayer path telling the story of Jesus last days. It was very powerful walking the path listening to all the stories, my 3 boys learned a lot from it and seemed to be touched by What they learned. When we arrived at one of the interactive stations there is a bronze statue of Jesus after he fell carrying the cross and after the story was done and we explained it more clearly to our 4 year old Jordan he wanted to give Jesus a hug before we left that station, that really moved me. It is located in St. John Indiana, about an hour drive from Chicago, I highly recommend stopping there it is completely free, there is a gift shop or donation boxes if you’d like to donate.

      They ask not to take pictures at some of the stations as they are holy grounds so we decided not to take Any at all while On the prayer path. We went for lunch on cedar lake afterwards, What a great way to spend Mother’s Day she was very happy.

                    It was very nice, highly recommend visiting if you have the opportunity. People from all over the country come to walk the path.

                      Thank you for sharing 1967coronet440. Wish I live in Indiana, as I would go there right away. Yes, you do have a beautiful family, and are a good father to share the beauty of Christ with your family. Our Lord is truly all we have! God bless!

                        God Bless, Bo. Glad Momma had a great day.

                        I actually may be looking to move out that way in a few years...South Dyer, St John area.

                          I was thinking Cedar Lake too, but I still need to get to the city everyday, hell or high water. An hour and a half with no traffic is a little too far. lol
