Crocifisso Sagrestia della Basilica all'interno di Cattedrale Patriarcale di San Marco Venezia
"Crucifix of the Basilica Sacristy inside the Patriarchal Cathedral of San Marco Venice"...
“God of hope and mercy, we lift up to you all victims of natural disasters and those responding with assistance and aid. Protect all who are in any form of danger; provide practical help to those in need; strengthen the weary, console the grieving, heal the suffering; and bless those engaged in disaster relief efforts with safety and courage. Help all people of good will respond with compassion and generous hearts. Amen.”
The last day of our Pilgrimage of 2019 was spent in Venice. Busing to the docks at the Venetian Lagoon from Padua to catch our private boat to the Basilica di San Marco, an exemplary spiritual treasure for a special Mass offered by our Father Peek. Our last Mass of 2 weeks of travel throughout Italy could not have ended in a more appropriate location. My first visit to Venice was in 2012 like all tourists, I waited in line at St. Marks Basilica and was rushed through with limitations. The crowds and speed in which they pushed us through was quite underwhelming. Our Pilgrimage of 2019 reserved a special appointment for Mass in the Basilica’s main Sacristy. I photographed each Mass, but I made sure when arriving in the area of this picture, which is the final prayer and preparation for each Priest offering Mass anywhere in the Basilica. The main focus is the Crucifix in front of a kneeler, and various last minute preparation for Divine Liturgy. I was not allowed further images on the rest of the tour of St. Marks, but the intensive back-room maze we were lead to and from our destination gave me the spiritual, historical, and reverent image in my heart and soul that I so desired from this magnificent structure and its contents. I was quite overwhelmed with the ancient beauty, and the fact St. Mark watches over his earthly home with a Fatherly Spirit. To me, Venice is intoxicating and a place of passion, and it all begins at the Cathedral of St. Marks.
