Sartene

We celebrated our last Easter here in Corsica and it was bittersweet. We are really excited to start the next chapter we feel the Lord is leading us too but very sad to leave this place and our friends. This Easter we visited the 'heart' of Corsica's Easter procession in Sartene. They mimic Jesus' walk for 2 hours though the village on Good Friday. There is a man, who you see in red in photos below, that 'nobody' knows who he is. It is a secret because once he does the walk, his sins are gone. And there are huge crowds that walk with them. Often people will wait on the waiting list for 40 years to be give this opportunity.

Their Easter here is like our county fair...its guarantied to rain.

Grace is our only Hope

Augustine: For grace is given not because we have done good works, but in order that we may be able to do them.
