Good Friday 2009

Antarctica is as far as anywhere from the cradles of Christendom culturally if not in geographical fact, but I love this stark image with the ice plains and Mount Erebus in the background. A thought from the 6th century Syrian hymnographer, Romanos:

Let us lay aside all tiresome arguments and attach ourselves to the one on the cross.

    This cross was placed here in memory of the victims of a plane crash in 1979. This original one had to be replaced later as it didn’t withstand the rigours of the weather conditions. See
