Ave Maria Grotto Video


I’ve been sharing about my trip to the Ave Maria Grotto at the St. Bernard Abbey in Cullman, Alabama. Since Brother Joseph Zoettl’s work is truly art and can best be appreciated visually, I thought you might enjoy seeing this little video I put together. It features many of my favorite miniatures and shrines from the Grotto, accompanied by one of my favorite songs from Christ Music Kids. Enjoy!

  1. Wonderful video. I liked it. I am planning to do an online article about visiting monasteries and will include a link to this great video. Thanks for all the work in putting this video together.
