Saturday is wrapping up, but before midnight strikes here in Rome I’d like to post two photos of ceilings with beautiful images of Our Lady on them. A conversation with a friend today reminded me of these two photos that I had in “the archives”.
Here is the ceiling in the Church of Saint Marcellus on the Corso (San Marcello al Corso), a three minute walk from my back door:
Here is the ceiling of the Basilica of Our Lady at the Altar of Heaven (Santa Maria in Aracoeli), a 10 minute walk from my back door:
Each of these photos shows just the central section of the much larger ceiling – i.e. the area where the medallion of Our Lady is. The first one, in the Church of St. Marcellus, is my favorite, though both are extremely beautiful!
