Beauty in a pine cone

During our Footsteps of Mary pilgrimage on Thursday I came across this pine cone. It was lying in the place where a church used to be that Mary loved to go and pray at daily. In the quiet of the meditation I saw the beauty in the plain, unattractive cone in the mud. Mary found beauty in the downtrodden; and consolation, strength and joy in the Blessed Sacrament.

Here are a few more shots from our pilgrimage on Thursday.
