This summer, I have an incredible opportunity to do a pilgrimage to the tomb of St. James.  The Camino de Santiago in Spain is a pilgrimage that Christians have walked for hundreds of years.  With many starting points all around Spain, France and Portugal, pilgrims walk for several days across the countryside to reach the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, where the remains of St. James the Greater, one of Jesus’ original twelve apostles, is buried. Pretty exciting right?

COLORADO SPRINGS. The 200 year-old Cristo Crucificando, also known as the Tilley Cross, soon will be shipped back home to Mexico.

The crucifix, presently on display in the Colorado College Fine Arts Center (FAC) in Colorado Springs, is believed to have once hung in a local chapel or village church in the Queretaro region, located in the north-central area of Mexico. The cross earned its nickname from the man who bought the piece. His daughter, Eve Tilley-Chavez, is president of the Pikes Peak Arts Council.
