Light in the Darkness

My pilgrimage to France and Italy this past Holy Week went well. It gave me a lot of time to journal and clear my thoughts about my personal direction. Many times I was surprised by God in the way I'd find answers to my questions in a bible passage or two. Or the time when I confessed and the priest gave me divine advice that had nothing whatsoever to what I confessed to him.

This is one of my most favorite pictures I took inside the Vatican. It exemplifies light in the darkness.

In such a grandiose space, the light soothes and pacifies and makes everything simpler. It gives a stark contrast emphasizing the intricate grill work that is found in many places all over Rome (and that I love).

Many prayers have been said at this spot and I'm sure many of them have already been answered.
