Eyes, Heart and Spirit
"I have dreamed about stepping into Saint Peter's Square since my first art history class. Today my dream became a reality. I was immediately engulfed by Bernini's architectural hug. As I gazed at the massive marble monument, I was transfixed by its strong lines, yet delicate detail. This harmonious architectural balance created spiritual drama and drew my eyes, heart, and spirit to this physical manifestation of the power and majesty of Catholicism."
