Catholic Art Saturday/ Quo Vadis

Our old parish, had this image hanging outside the Adoration Chapel and I loved the message.
“Quo Vadis?” derives from an early Christian story in which the Apostle Peter, leaving Rome because of the fierce persecution of Christians, had a vision of Christ walking down the road towards him. Peter asked, “Quo vadis, Domine?” meaning, “Where are you going, Lord?” and was told, “I am going to Rome to be crucified in your place.” After that Peter retraced his steps and returned to Rome and was crucified upside down.
Where are we going, do we try to run away from our crosses?
