Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church (Cassella)

Up until now I had only posted pictures of the outside of this church. This Sunday I checked out the inside and found a very lovely church. Upon entering parishioners are greeted by this sign.

This church is one of the few that has a mural adorning the ceiling.

It was quite dark in the church and it took some time for my eyes to adjust from the bright sunlight outside. When they did one of the first things I found was this crucifix.

Of course the church has its share of stained glass windows. These portraits of Mary and Jesus were my favorite of the bunch.

And of course we cannot forget the Stations of the Cross. These were large statues along the wall. I plan on doing a future post featuring one or more of these.

This is a close-up of when Jesus Meets the sorrowful woman of Jerusalem.

The Main Altar featured Mary and Child.

Here is the right altar with Joseph and a station setup with the Lent Cross. Notice the dice (often used for what was used to cast lots for Jesus' clothing).

Of course there are lots more pictures but this will do for now.
