I've featured this Washington house of worship before and I posted a couple of pictures as part of my SkyWatch Friday last week. I promised Cowbark I'd post more pictures this week.
A couple of weekends ago, a friend of mine from high school was in town. We went to Hillwood Museum & Gardens, which I'll feature more of later this week, as well as to the National Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. These are just a few more of the pictures I took.
If you'd like to see some additional photos featuring a handful of the more than 30 chapels and rosary altars in the Basilica, as well as the robes worn by Pope Benedict XVI when he visited Washington this past spring, see Standing Room Only.
I liked the sun coming through the windows and resting on this woman in our tour group. She lingered a bit longer than the rest of the crowd, who moved on from the sanctuary in the Great Upper Church to see the icons for Our Mother of Perpetual Help in the same.
