Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore » Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore
Often I feel my spirituality is locked up behind a wall or fence, contained, frozen inside of me. I love how this picture focuses clearly on the fence and leaves the statue, art, and beauty of the church blurred. It mirrors my internal experience. I miss the forest for the trees all of the time. This was the most important discovery of my first trip out of the United States to Rome, Italy. There is no better picture that represents this realization than this one taken at Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore.
