Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament 2/14/2014

On the road again Friday Feb. 14
The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery is Catholic shrine. Adjacent is the cloistered Monastery of Poor Clare Nuns of Perpetual Adoration, on a 400-acre site and is a religious center affiliated with the Eternal Word Television Network.  Its foundress, Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation currently resides at the cloistered monastery with her group of nuns.
 I took these photos off the Internet because photos were not allowed.
The shrine is notable for its gilt interior and solemn atmosphere.
 The shrine is named in honor of the Blessed Sacrament, while the building surroundings are dedicated to the Divino Niño, a title of the Child Jesus.

Rooting around on the lawn.  Learned a week later how important it is to stay away from armadillos.
A quick snapshot of Vulcan as we passed on the expressway in Birmingham.  The Vulcan statue is the largest cast iron statue in the world, and is the city symbol of Birmingham, Alabama, reflecting its roots in the iron and steel industry. The 56-foot tall statue depicts the Roman god Vulcan, god of the fire and forge.

We stayed at Flying J near Montgomery, AL
