It cannot be denied that our world is in the midst of turmoil unlike anything we’ve seen in the past.
From Birmingham to Beijing, we are seeing unprecedented poverty, crime, hate, violence, war, famine….you name it. Combine these issues with a mainstream media who is salivating at the chance to rile us up for ratings and money, and the world becomes a downright scary place.
Where do we turn when the world seems to shun us? For some, the answers lie in the bottom of a bottle. For others, it’s self-harm or outward violence.
For many, however, their faith is their rock. They turn to the religious world for answers to the questions that plague us today, and, often, they discover signs of encouragement.
Such is the case today in Argentina.

While another said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.”
The photo has to be seen to be believed.

The pose and grand scale of the image has reminded many observers of the famous Christ The Redeemer statue in Brazil.

And while the cloud formation certainly isn’t going to change the minds of the unfaithful, it does provide us all with a reminder that we are loved, and we must remain harmonious with one another on this turbulent little space rock.
