LAURIE BETH ZUCKERMAN PHOTOGRAPHS MADONNA AT PAX GUEST HOUSE IN TRINIDAD










































Laurie Zuckerman traveled to Trinidad in the West Indies during the month of May. These photos of the Madonna statue in the "secret garden" at the PAX Guest House in the Northern Range are my favorite ones for color and spirituality. My room looked down at this mysterious walled garden. Glass bottle shards "adorn" the cement walls, to keep out intruders and devotees.

Our Lady of Fatima graces the Mount Saint Benedict Church above the PAX Guest House. This lifesize statue is surrounded by live tropical plants and flowers.


Here is the view of PAX from the Mount Saint Benedict Monastery. What a wonderful place to stay in Trinidad. Far from the madding crowd. Cooler, breezier, plenty of lusciously colored birds. Just down the hill from PAX is this Catholic Seminary below.

Watch for more postings of spiritual photos of churches and cemeteries in Trinidad in the coming month.
