Chilling video of abandoned St. Peter’s Square on New Year’s Eve Day

This video from my friend Bree says a lot.

As I look at that… I wonder where the DAMNED BOWL is.

    Video would have been better if it had used the horizontal position instead of vertical.

    Nobody should be surprised!

    That recalls Sonnet 73:

    “Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.”

    A temporary situation, one Hopes.

    It is somewhat early in the morning. So it’s not surprising. But, Pope Francis did want to discourage people from spending their money to come to Rome. So that seems to have worked.

    Clearly Saint Peter’s isn’t open for business. Maybe next year?
