The stone with the Second Commandment at Mother Cabrini Shrine

Mother Cabrini Shrine is a beautiful and peaceful place for prayer and pilgrimage welcoming people of all Faith. The place is dedicated to Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Mother Cabrini is the first American Citizen Saint, the Patron saint of Immigrants, the Shrine was established after her canonization in 1946. I was deeply touched and impressed with the complex. I love the way the weathered stone with the Commandment looks like a genuine and natural part of Colorado landscape.
