St Francis of Assisi


This hand-carved statue of Saint Francis of Assisi is a good choice for a Sunday post, especially since we are going to the Cathedral Basilica of St Francis of Assisi for services today.  The church has an excellent music program. which we have always enjoyed. The statue is in a private collection of a friend of ours.

  1. Hmmm. Wouldn't be a favorite statue of mine, but being hand-carved it's probably valuable. Have fun at the cathedral!

  3. Colorful photo....I think anyone who has been to Santa Fe has photographed the Baslicia. Wish I had taken the time to go in. I am betting that you have some sunshine today.

  6. Such a nice carving. Probably depicting his sorrow while visiting the Stations of The Cross.

  7. I still forget you are in another place, but found you again, love the statue of Franciscus of Assisi. Was there just before the earthquake damaged the cathedral a few years ago.
