Thursday's Child: The Churches of Krakow

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Christmas greetings, featuring the churches of Krakow, Poland, and passages from Handel's Messiah:


Church of St. Peter and St. Paul

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace."
- Isaiah 9:6
St Andrew's church

"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill to man."
- Luke 2: 13-14
Dominican church of the Holy Trinity

"The kingdom of this world is become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever."
- Revelation 11:15b
Church of St. Peter and St. Paul
Wishing all my readers a wonderful Christmas, and a New Year resplendent with hope, peace, joy and love.
