inSPIREd Sunday

This is Santa Maria in Aracoeli, in Rome,
way up at the top of the Capitoline Hill.
I've been wanting to see the inside 
of this church for years.  Finally, last month, 
I climbed up there only to be stopped
at the door because there was a wedding
taking place.  The guard decided to
let us in, though—and I'm so glad.  There are
many, many gorgeous churches in Rome, 
but none with dozens of chandeliers like this one.
(And the wedding was beautiful too,
and bilingual: French bride, Italian groom.)

[To see more churches from
around the world, go here.]


  1. That is a lovely sanctuary.

  2. I have never seen the inside of this church. How fine that a wedding was going on.

  3. You should be very proud of this picture ..... it is beautiful!

  4. So glad you were able to go in. Incredible beauty.

  5. The wedding makes this picture even more special. Though, yes, those chandeliers are gorgeous!
