St. Pauls Episcopal (Key West)

This picture of the St. Pauls Episcopal Church in Key West Fl. was taken from the roof of the La Concha Hotel. The hotel is the tallest building on the island. The hotel is 7 floors and 105 feet tall. Not a very tall building but tall enough to see the complete island and of course this church.

According to our driver for the day, the church has been in several movies. Two of them James Bond. He also said that the stained glass windows of the church were insured for over a million dollars.

Here is a shot of the altar and stained glass window of the Crucifixion above. The photographer in the picture is just another photo happy tourist.

I could of spent hours shooting this church but already had other plans for the day.

John the Baptist Baptizes Jesus

Another church that I visited while in Key West was the Saint Pauls Episcopal Church. This church had some fantastic stained glass windows. I have more pictures of this church that I will post later.

Guardian Angel Prayer

Guardian Angel,
watch over those whose names you can read in my heart.
Guard over them with every care
and make their way easy and their labors fruitful.

Dry their tears if they weep;
sanctify their joys;
raise their courage if they weaken;
restore their hope if they lose heart,
their health if they be ill,
truth if they err,
repentance if they fail.

Well it has been sometime since my last post. I hope to get back into the swing of things soon. I found this angel statute by the grotto of the Saint Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church while touring Key West Florida. I will post more pictures soon.

Churches Distinguish Ohio Towns

Happy Easter
Kathy sent me the link to her article in the Cincinnati Enquirer that was published today. It is a very nice piece on The Land of the Cross Tipped Churches. As promised there is a promo in what they call a Breakout box that promoted the show at the library and the Cross Tipped Church Blog.

Thanks Kathy, the article and the added blurb were just fantastic. Here is a link to her article: Churches Distinguish Ohio Towns
