Holy Father arrives in Spain
He will visit the ancient shrine of Santiago de Compostela and bless the church of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. Both our older children have visited the monumental church at separate times, and both were deeply impressed, especially with its interior. It is a church like no other in the world artistically speaking. I have blogged their visits here with pictures. Gaudi, the architect, a deeply religious man and a devout Catholic, was little understood by his contemporaries, and now has a cause for canonization started for him. There is a cute book about him for children: see here.
This blog is dedicated to my Mother and Father, who taught me of God and of Art--and to Saint Teresa Benedicta de la Croce, our youngest child's patron saint, and about whom Husband and I learned together.
