Views of the Vatican

The Vatican is such a prominent part of the Roman landscape that it can be seen no matter which side of the Tiber River you stand. As I edited photos from Rome, I noticed several themes and this week it’s the Vatican and its surroundings. Hope you enjoy it, and that you all have a wonderful Christmas and Chanukkah!

  1. What is more beautiful and simple as the man praying by the columns? Despite the grandeur of the Church and majesty of the pieces of art, nothing is more loved than the simple man praying with God. Merry Christmas
