St. Joseph (Pulpit)

One of my unique finds in the Land of the Cross Tipped Churches is this historical pulpit in the St. Joseph Catholic Church in St. Joseph, Ohio. The Infant Jesus of Prague greets the priest as he ascends the stairs.

The base of the pulpit is surrounded by statues of the Four Evangelists with their associated symbol.

From left to right we have, John (Eagle), Mark (Lion), Luke (Ox) and Matthew (Human/Angel)

Jesus adorns the top, holding a tablet with Alpha and Omega.

wonder if St Joesph in Egypt had the same style of pulpit, the station to the right in the picture looks the same. When is your show, did I miss it or is it still coming up

I will look and see if I can post a side by side comparison of the stations of the cross from the two churches. You did not miss the show. The show has been changed from the Month of February to April 2010.
