Divine Mercy Sunday

Amphitheater Steps, Lagiewniki Sanctuary of Divine Mercy,
Krakow, Poland  © Doug Hickok


In the Roman Catholic Church, today, the Second Sunday of Easter, is designated as Divine Mercy Sunday. My family had the opportunity to visit the Basilica of Divine Mercy in 2007 when we chaperoned for the Cathedral Girls Chorus of which our daughter was a member. While the girls were rehearsing, I had the chance to climb to the top of the tower to see what my eyes could spy...
and what I spied were the amazing patterns of the amphitheater and the yellow hues of the flora and flooring!

  1. Very nice composition, again!
    It was a good idea to climb to the tower. Did you take much photos from there?

    (I found Charleston on Google maps! :))
