The pictures seem to depict St. John Bosco.
Well, when you click on the image to enlarge it's called neri.jpg so I'll be going for St Phillip Neri!
Ah, so is it in a St Phillip Neri Church then?
The "neri" thing was my deliberate misdirection; I'm glad somebody noticed. :) The chuch is Ss. Peter and Paul in San Francisco, and you can see more shots of the fabulous interior here.
Wow! I clicked on the pics. I wouldn't mind visiting this church!
"Give me souls and you can take the rest" St. John BoscoThe painting of the ship is from one of his most famous dreams. Read more about his prophetic dreams here:http://www.bosconet.aust.com/DBD.htmlor read the book:"Forty Dreams of John Bosco"available herehttp://www.amazon.com/Forty-Dreams-St-John-Bosco/dp/0895555972
It's a very interesting church, rather ironically located at 666 Filbert Street, the steepest street in San Francisco.Thanks Jim! One more for the to-read list. :) His dream of Hell is still the scariest thing I've ever read on the subject.
That must be St. Dominic Savio with Don Bosco.
I had to look him up. You're probably right!Any guesses who the other priest is who's confessing to Don Bosco?
Good question.It could just be a priest of the order St. John Bosco founded, Society of St. Francis De Sales.The boys in the background represent his apostolic work and the prist represents his accomplishment as a founder. St. Francis De Sales is one of my all time favorites - he combined a deep prayer life with zealous and creative apostolic zeal.
He also became my confirmation saint, so you can't do better than that. ;) I liked him for his humility and zeal.
