Yesterday, Monday, after Pat's class, we decided to go to St. Peter's. My back was feeling better so we went! It was an easy bus ride from the CEA center (the same bus runs from the Center to the Vatican) to St. Peter's
We had been there before, but it is ever ancient, ever new. I took a ton of photos' even though I know we will return because we haven't seen the Vatican Museum this time yet. Just the vastness of it blows you away. The statues are huge and beautiful and powerful and graceful and....and....je ne sais qoi!!!!!! The altar and baldechino are massive and the dome!!!!!!!! There are no words to describe it. I will post a few photos
the 2nd photo is, of course, Michelangelo's Pieta behind a plexiglass shield. We stood in awe!!
the 3rd is a beautiful, graceful statue of St. Veronica in a niche up high.
and the 4th is the Bernini columns.
