Catholic Life

I like to see what sorts of things are at the back of churches, which goes along with how I like to look around the backs of things: the mundane parts of things are attractive.

In this case, I hit a double jackpot – a hand-lettered cardboard box and someone’s left-behind sparkly sunglasses!

Outside the hallowed walls

I like stained glass windows. I like them a lot.

But this was nice, too, the way regular life was still visible through to church’s clear glass windows.

I located this simple tableaux in the church’s bell tower.

It was just a day after Thanksgiving and Christmas lights were sprouting all over the place. These lights weren’t on, but the lucky angle of the sun made it look as though they were.

Shadow Line

Well, who could resist these spring-like shadows on a rough stucco wall? Not me, obviously.
