This is St James Cathedral of the Armenian Catholic branch of the Eastern rite in Old Jerusalem. Their church calendar begins on September 1 and not the first Sunday of Advent as is used by the Western church. As a part of their Good Friday liturgy the death of Christ is represented by this beautifully decorated “casket”.
Feast Day Today
The sun sets over the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas. The Great Mother Goddess catches the light of the setting sun and oversees the beauty of Montana’s Jocko Valley.
