My World Tuesday: St. Anne's Under Light Snow in Waterbury
Before church on Sunday, I stopped at Home Depot to get a few keys cut. Stepping out of the car, I caught this view of St. Anne's Cathedral in Waterbury, Connecticut. I liked the way the church blended with the tree line on the frontier of the parking lot. Waterbury is full of beautiful surprises like this one.
I came around the back of the church after that errand and saw the church from the perspective above. The old factory houses continued the line of the cathedral, and I thought that was as it should be. One home should be part of another. This view also brought to mind a Roman creche I saw at the Knights of Columbus Museum in New Haven, Connecticut, a few years ago. An alley off a Roman street comprises the elaborte nativity scene. Through the tiny windows I could see babies in the company of their mothers. There was no central Holy Family to be found. The message: that Christ is born in each of our hearts. That suited me just fine. May the love that makes His story be found there for each of us.My World Tuesday
