    Ponte Sant Angelo, the ancient bridge that crosses the Tiber provides a venue for an iconic and much photographed, sketched and painted scene of St Peter’s Dome. But the beauty of the bridge is not only what you can see from it but you can see on it. The statues of the ten angels each carrying an item that figured in Our Lord’s passion can provide for a meditation on those events of Good Friday that saw us forgiven and redeemed. Here the angel carries “The Robe” for which the soldiers cast lots. The stroll across this bridge should not be hurried. It really can provide an opportunity for reflection.
    Thanks FrZ for these remarkable pictures and the memories they evoke. I hope to visit again, someday, this beautiful city.

    Under ‘Ponte Sant Angelo’, Wikipedia states

    “On 21 October 2019 Austrian activist Alexander Tschugguel threw five Pachamama statues, which he had stolen from a display at Santa Maria in Traspontina as part of the Amazon Synod, and threw them off of the bridge into the Tiber.”
