It's easy to be inspired when walking the land around one of
The Painted Churches,
all within close proximity of my home.
Although the community population is only 44,
there is a Sunday Mass.
Anytime I have out of town guests,
I manage a tour of several of these churches.
The hand-painted interiors are exquisite.
As you can see, it is a remote location.
When you enter, the sky blue ceiling immediately catches your eye.
There are hundreds of tiny gold stars,
hand-painted on the ceiling.

There are more photos to share with you,
from a previous post.
The doors are always open for viewing....but, at certain times of the day,
a gate is placed before the inside entrance.
Such was the case today.
I had to literally lie flat on the floor,
place my camera lens through the bars,
to capture the above photo.
I would say it was well worth it....
Enjoy your Sunday.
Linking today with InSPIREd Sunday
to view other churches,
synagogues, cemeteries, and other religious buildings
from around the world.
Very picturesque church. I like his white façades and architecture.ReplyDelete
Your photos are great. You showed the beauty of the place.
Greetings from Poland.
thank you for your comment....did you notice both of our church posting have a sky blue ceiling with the tiny gold stars?Delete
...gorgeous inside and out. I've seen two painted church in Hawaii.ReplyDelete
Hello Tom...there are 20 painted churches in Texas, built by early Czech and German settlers. 4 of them are within a 12-mile drive of my home. All have been maintained and still have a weekly mass.Delete
Beautiful old church especially inside. You were lucky to get to see inside like that, I don't get that chance.ReplyDelete
Hello Bill...thanks for your comment. Yes, I would say I am lucky they are open. I find it very disturbing when a church door is locked, but fully understand why it must sometimes be this way. After all, you would think this would be the one place to find solace, day or night.Delete
That sky blue ceiling would be very pleasant to see every week.ReplyDelete
It is, and peaceful too....it makes you look upward, and, that is a good thing.Delete
This is a real beauty....so, so pretty inside.ReplyDelete
And to think, I have 3 more of these beauties, all in a 12 mile radius of my home.Delete
