Prayer of Crying

An Ethiopian lady is praying in the rock-hewn church on Easter. The churches in Lalibela were carved out of the mountain rock on all four sides. Today, these churches remain to be a religious center, as sacred to the people of Ethiopia as hundreds of years ago when they were carved.
