A Picture Worth a Thousand Words...


After doing the sign of the cross several times before the gun went off to start the race, Ethiopian runner, Meseret Defar, holds up an image of the Virgin Mary carrying Baby Jesus that she carried inside her shirt, and immediately pulled out, kissed it and showed it to the cameras, after crossing the finish line in first place to win the 5000 meters gold medal on Friday.

Christianity, especially Catholicism, in Ethiopia, like in most of Africa, is growing faster than anywhere else in the world.
