Beautiful. Now that's what I mean about a face that is not the girl next door. I've seen much more beautiful renderings of our lady, but beautiful in this sense, I mean it is not a common looking face. I do love Mary faces that meet that standard and also portray her as other worldy beautiful. I am convinced our Lady was unspeakably beautiful on her exterior as well as her interior.

To board the struggle bus: no whining, board with a smile, a fake one will be found out and put off at next stop, no maps, no directions, going only one way, one destination. Follow all rules and you will arrive. Drop off at pearly gate. Bring nothing.

St. Peter's Priory in Berlin, run by the SSPX.

I've been there last weekend and took this picture during mass. Lovely church.

I went to Fátima today with my folks. It was slightly crowded in the Apparitions Chapel since we're approaching May.

I took some pictures that I thought I'd share with you. Enjoy.

The new UFO basilica with its "crucifix":







The old basilica on the opposite side:



Inside the old basilica, facing the main altar:



A typical side altar with one of the Stations of the Cross. In this case, the crowning with thorns:



A statue of Paul VI commemorating the first ever papal visit to Fátima in 1967. The statue was built precisely on the spot where he knelt:

Yes. In West Berlin. On the corner, right across from an Ubahn and overpass to the north of them. Gorgeous wooden doors. I miss Berlin. October, 2016:  My Muslim/Turk cabbie turned to me upon arrival, switched to English, and said:" You never see this in Germany. . . your brothers will help you [get a ride back to East Berlin]." He was right and had a sense of respect in his voice. I went to the 18.00 Mass.

The iconostasis at St. Michael's Byzantine Catholic Church in Pleasant City, Ohio

O unashamed intercessor of Christians, ever loyal advocate before the Creator, do not disregard the prayerful voice of sinners but in your goodness hasten to assist us who trustfully cry out to you: Intercede always, O Mother of God, in behalf of those who honor you!

The greatest iconostasis I've seen so far was in the Church of St Clement of Rome in Moscow (the irony of that is beautiful eh?) It is awe inspiring. Orthodox don't mess around. Pictures don't do it justice - it is huge.
