Colosseum

Stealing the Cross

It is amazing to walk through the Roman Colosseum!  The historical significance is staggering and the spiritual implications are overwhelming. The Colosseum looms over Rome and is so huge and powerful in appearance, but this is nothing compared to the significance it has in history. Here great battles were recreated for massive audiences, gladiators fought to the death, wild animals battled, and Christians were fed to the lions.  Different Caesar's reigned over the festivities and people all over the world at that time marveled at the thought of seeing the incredible shows and barbarism.  A focal point in the Colosseum today is a metal cross that stands where Caesar stood and ruled over the festivities.
