In Barcelona

























This is the Church of St. Maria del Mar. It was the church in front of which St. Ignatius begged shortly after his conversion. I took the shot of the people sitting in the square in front of the church doing nothing becuase it is such a typical European sight. They aren't in as big a rush as we are to be doing something productive. They sit alot in front of beautiful things....I suppose if we had as many beautifuk things, we'd sit in front of them too. (Somehow, I don't think the newly renovated St. Charles Borromeo Church in North Hollywood is going to fit the bill...)

There was a wedding going on in the church while we were there and all the locals didn't seem to realize that their plain old parish church is one of the pureest examples of Gothic ecclesial architecture on the planet. My dumb old camera doesn't do it justice. It is breathtaking.
