St Augustine

“Everything in life is a theater; we are all actors and actresses in it”. I don’t know who this saint was but I like him. We visited a beautiful Catholic Church today. It was built in 1668 by the Paces family. It has over 2000 plaster sculptures built by over 300 imported Italian masters. The floating ship of crystals was a gift from Latvia signifying Peter/Paul, I forget. It was stunning. When you leave there is a sculpture of a a Skelton. The inscription was “death takes everyone including kings”.
