Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 35 Plenty of Sunshine High 64) 

Driving around Kerrville Texas you cannot help but notice this empty cross high on the hill overlooking Kerrville. So after Ash Wednesday Mass and lunch we decided to visit.

A local sculpturer and a foundation setup to build the sculpture prayer gardens had quite a battle with atheists and others who were in opposition. A lawsuit was filed but settled after a 9 year battle so that work could begin. The first thing installed was the empty cross in 2010.

In addition to the 77’7” contemporary sculpture called “The Empty Cross” there are seven other sculptures that can also be viewed at this location. There is a path throughout the garden, called the “Path To Heaven” consisting of 77 Bible verses, in multiple languages, to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Here is an example of the scripture tile.

Other sculptures.
