This piece explains the history of the enormous bronze figure of Christ that was erected in the Andes between Chile and Argentina. In 1900, when the two countries were on the brink of war, Monsignor Benavente passionately appealed for peace at Buenos Ayres [sic]. Supporters of the Church made petitions across the Argentine Republic and the war was averted. In memorial, the Argentine government melted down their arsenal and cast the colossal figure, which was carried 13,000 feet to the mountaintop and, on 13 March, 1904, dedicated to the world.
