As a devout lover of Rome, I must do a Vatican post after Pope Benedict’s resignation. History has been made, the last pope resigned 600 years ago.
My family and I were in Rome in 1978 and attended the coronation of Pope Paul 1. He died 33 days later amidst suspicions of murder…possibly because he was a good man and wanted to clean house. There are rumors that God is about to do a mighty work in the Catholic church, so I pray that another godly man is appointed to the highest seat of Catholicism this year.
Here are the Vatican Gardens, behind St Peter’s Cathedral. Unfortunately, when I took these pictures three years ago I was barely interested in photography, but what the heck, you can’t rob them of their beauty 🙂
one of the most peaceful place I know…
yes, you are so right, it’s very, very special 🙂
