*Post a picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently*
My recent trip to Rome for the beatification of Pope John Paul II (now Blessed) has had a very intense impact on my life. Although I posted these pictures once before....Blogger somehow LOST that post and I haven't yet had the opportunity to upload them again. If anyone ever tells you that standing in the middle of St. Peter's Square is not a moving experience (Catholic or no), they are outright lying to you! I don't think there is anything that has so deeply affected me (not counting the birth of my kids) the way that St. Peter's does. I know that I can't adequately express it, but my very soul was touched and uplifted. It's something that affected me to the very core of who I am. I can honestly say that I will never be the same after having been there.
OK..enough talk, here are the pictures from the Beatification on Sunday, May 1st, 2011.
