Death at the Vatican

Here are a couple of pics for you from our trip to Rome a few years ago. It occurred to me that there was a great skeleton over the old exit door in the Vatican, placed there to remind parishioners that their time would come and to remember the Church and the state of their souls. I thought they would make great reference photos.

    i'm not the religous sort by any stretch but the Vatican seems pretty cool.

    Vatican is on the list of country I wish to visit. Now to get the time and the money for it :-)

    I agree with you - hubby took great pictures!
