The journey to Lake Verna is a prayer. The East Inlet Trail to Lake Verna is a prayer because it follows paternoster lakes. Roman Catholics for centuries have used a string of beads to recite the Rosary, each bead leading the worshipper to the next section of prayer. The first words of the Lord’s Prayer, “Our Father,” is “Pater Noster” in Latin. Because prior to the Second Vatican Council in 1962, Latin was the preferred language of this prayer, “pater noster” became another term for Rosary beads.
