Cristo Redentor

I was thrilled and moved to go to the top of Corcovado mountain in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to see this iconic statue of Cristo Redentor or Christ the Redeemer. It is a 130 feet or 40 meters high. The statue, erected in 1931 at a cost 0f $250,000, was paid for by donations mainly from Brazilian Catholics. It is the best known symbol of Rio. What better image for a Sunday?
