Easter or Any Time in Italy

Easter……..I thought I would share some pictures with you. It has been cold in the south the entire month of March to me. No rabbits, no eggs, no peeps. The birds are hardly looking for a mate. Or have they found their mate and are trying to stay warm? This is why I love Italy.  On every corner you are reminded of God, of something bigger than you.  In Rome there are nuns and priests everywhere all the time.  There are Cardinals in their bright red robes and some in magenta huddling in groups to discuss who knows what.  There are masses of people in the churches or waiting in line to get into church.

But, what I like are the statues, crosses, stained glass windows, icons, churches big and small, bells ringing and the small memorials on the sides of buildings and at crossroads in the countryside.  The Italians say, “God is always watching and it is a good way to remind you to choose between good and evil.”  I like to think of it as God is always watching over me.  He is everywhere in everything.  I like to be Italy Sep _ Oct 2009 534reminded.
In a very small Italian village, Montisi, just a blip on the map, my husband and I took a narrow steep paved path from the car park up the hill.  At the top was a tiny stone church perched on the cliff.  Here on the front of the church was a stone with a map of the village etched into it. In Italian it read, “you are here.”  The path took you to the church and back down making a circle.  A beginning with no end.  Have a blessed Easter!
