Natchitoches: December Light

Banner of the Altar Society of Saint Thérèse: Natchitoches, Louisiana (Basilica of the Immaculate Conception).

Stained glass: Saint Anthony of Padua with Baby Jesus, Natchitoches (Basilica of the Immaculate Conception).  This one's strange in that 1) it almost has the feel of a jukebox and 2) because of the camera's aperture, it looks as if surrounded by a black void, whereas the naked eye could see white. Not to mention the slight Leaning Tower of Pisa angle.

Today's Rune: Joy.

Some saints have become more popular than others and St. Anthony of Padua could be worshiped in various countries, which is also patron. Ah, the window seems even a Jukebox! Erik, that your home has been very cheerful and full of affections. Now we head into a new year again. What is new in its largest sense! Beijus,

There is definitely a lean, and a jukebox feel to that window. Interesting.

Erik, St. Therese! A very good friend of mine is named Therese. You don't hear that name much anymore.
