    A powerful photograph from inside St Peter’s Basilica looking from the area of the papal altar down the nave towards the windows which overlook the square. The statue of our Lord is centrally displayed and the statue looks out over the square. The statue has been there for 500 years. These windows have been in place for over 500 years — imagine how many eyes have looked upon these windows and how many eyes in the square have looked upon that statue. Emperors, kings, queens, nobles, cardinals, bishops and popes and ordinary folk…pilgrims — and of course countless saints as well. And now here we are joining that vast catalogue of persons looking at this photographic image.
    Fantastic photograph. Praises to the artist-photographer.

    Everybody remembers that first time they enter St Peter’s. The awe and overwhelming sense of beauty. It’s an eye opener alright. I hope as many sister and brother Catholics as possible get that opportunity. In a sense, I feel like you deserve it. Many people go there as tourists (and that’s fine) but when you read the gospels, the words of Our Lord to Peter (which surround you as you move down the nave), particularly those fateful words to Peter at the end of John about the manner in which His chief Apostle would die, and then you see this magnificient church…it’s hard to describe exactly but it’s a powerful moment if you go as a believing Catholic.
