Promises (2)

In Portugal, in traditional catholic households it's common when facing dramatic situations (disease, trouble in a birth of a child, even scholar examinations) to make a promise, most of them to "Nª Srª de Fátima". And those promises generally include walking to Fatima on foot (sometimes hundreds of kilometers) or crossing the sanctuary kneeling. To soften those pilgrims suffering, a long walkway was built in marble, and there is always someone painfully sliding on it.

nynkeb Your shots are really good, but I find it heartbreaking to look at.

josy63 Je suis toujours aussi mortifiée de voir cela, mais chacun trouve réconfort et espoir en ce qu'il peut ou veut croire.

CHOSSID I like very much your treatment of the photos in both sets, tho' as others have mentioned, disagree with the premise.

liveandletlive I don't find it heartbreaking. I find it fascinating and I believe in the power of belief. I don't think it matters so much what a person believes in, but that they believe.
