The Cupola

Today I found a video from a reporter who is a correspondent for Fox News. About three years ago, I visited Rome for a couple of weeks and since the deacons from the seminary will be going to Rome in a little less than a month, I decided to share some pictures from the cupola (dome) of St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican.

This picture is of the Sistine Chapel. On the outside of the dome there are metal pieces to hold luminaries which were used during papal elections and other major celebrations.

The last picture looks out onto the piazza and Via della Conciliazione (the road that leads up to the Vatican)
