Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Montecatini, Italy)

What an appropriate church to share with you today! While traveling in Europe on a pilgrimage to World Youth Day, we spent a little bit of time in Montecatini, about an hour away from Florence, Italy. We attended mass every day. Since this church was right next to our hotel (you could see it from our rooms - actually, from the rooftop we were allowed on) we attended mass here. It was a very clean church with a giant rosary decorating the front and with the tabernacle to the side.

Here we are exploring the roof that we had access to from our hotel rooms. We stayed at "Hotel Peregrino", which means "Pilgrim's Hotel". They had flags of many many countries hanging outside. You can see the bell tower of the church in the background.

The church is the building on the right - not too small, not too big. It was a nice, refreshing service in a more modern building (for Italy, at least). What a great memory.
