We went into a church earlier today, and witnessed the most religious event. As you enter the church there is a staircase with about 30 old, wornout, creaky wooden steps to the top. The only way to get to the top of these stairs are on your knees.
There was an elderly lady ascending up these stairs, one slow wooden step at a time. From where we were standing, it was a visibly difficult exercise in religion, but to her a full sacrifice of body, mind and soul.
