Good Friday holiness

Sacrilege, I'm sure, but while editing our Italy photos today I came across this image from St. Peter's Basilica and decided it was worth sharing. Hey, it's Holy Week, and this is a holy-looking photo if I ever did see one. I love the way the light is streaming through the windows. Of course, it was even more breathtaking in person (and in color).

When I was little I used to think that when the sunbeams beat down through the clouds, it was so the people who had recently passed away could make their way to heaven. Sunbeams as heavenly escalators. Nice, right? I have no idea what put that thought into my head. It's not like my parents were hearts, unicorns and rainbows kind of people. However, I still like it, and I still think it to this day whenever I see the sunbeams coming through the clouds.

Anyway, happy Easter to you and yours. I'm looking forward to having more B bunny pictures to post after this weekend, and maybe I'll finally make some headway on those Italy pictures.

  1. What a beautiful photo -- can only imagine how amazing it was in person. I can't wait to see the 700 plus other photos from your Italy trip.
