Here are a couple more photos from my trip to St. Gertrude's
Monastery in Cottonwood, ID. One of the best things about my
trip was seeing the statuary and icons, especially the female angels.
As a child in Sunday School, our teacher once asked us to tell the
class what we wanted to be when we grew up. I was pretty sure
about what I wanted to be when I grew up - a Guardian Angel.
When I announced my career objective my teacher told me
that I could not be an angel because only boys could be angels.
I realized a long time ago that she was wrong, of course. And
was very pleased to see female angel statues at St. Gertrude's.
