    What it must be like to be walking the streets, running errands, and occasionally looking over yonder and seeing the centre of all Christendom in the distance. It would give me chills.

  2. Mary in CO says:

    “Centre”, indeed, Geoffrey. Seeing St. Peters like that leaves me with a feeling that all is well with the world.

    One thing missing from that photo … the cats of Rome

  3. Jane says:

    I visited Rome on a pilgrimage of Italy and France. The two places that I liked best are Rome and Lourdes.

    Fr. Z.,

    You truly have an eye for photography. I always get a sense of peace and beauty when I see a photo section here.

    thank you

  5. John Enright says:

    Father, if you snapped that photo, you are truly artistic! I don’t think that even a seasoned pro could produce a more serene and peaceful photo. Thanks.

  6. John: Thanks. Looking at it for a while, it occurs to me that part of what makes it work are the two figures walking on the embankment.

    Fr. Zuhlsdorf: … and just enough haze/pollution for good aerial perspective! :-)

  8. Chris M says:

    Great photo, Father! The contrast between the splendor and monumental size of the setting versus the two small figures is wonderful.

    I love this picture. It shows the beauty and wonder of God’s creation as the seasons change and also one of mankind’s best works of art and architecture that tangibly shows the power and glory of God here on earth. It calls me to contemplate how the foundation of this magnificent building literally rests on that very imperfect man who was called by our Lord to transform the world.
