Tall and Small

Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Valletta is somewhat a contradiction. When you finally find it on the narrow street, squeezed in between regular looking buildings, you’re not quite sure you’ve come to the right place. Because from where you’re standing it’s not much that reminds you of a church. But when you step inside there’s a whole other perspective that opens up. And afterwards, when you walk away from the delicate interior, as far as to the other side of the harbour, in Sliema, you’ll see the church dome rise above the Valletta skyline, and realise how tall it in fact is. All this with a photo of Jesus on the cross in my pocket, given to me by a lady inside the church. I am very far from a religious person, but for some reason I decided to hold on to it 🙂

Love to hear your comment :)
