Shoot Four - Another Bishop!

Beijing - these will get harder so enjoy while you can! Mariann, Mike, Jim, Milt, Michelle, Carol, Joani, Elaine, and Peyton. Welcome Niece Deana to the mix. . .

"Bishop de Cunha of Fall River"

Another bishop but this one is more localized as Bishop de Cunha is the spiritual leader of the Fall River Diocese. Bishop Edgar was born in Brazil.

I found his homily and presence around the altar to be exceptionally spiritual. Hence, turning the Bishop into a mosaic was my first thought.

I did send a copy of this to the bishop - heard he liked it.

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! I will offer some interesting facts about one of them. Just which city am I describing?

Think  Beaches! Partying! Samba! Well, it is a city that will overwhelm you and make you its prisoner for a lifetime. Such is the magic of this magnificent city.

The Pao de Acucar is yet another mountain-top wonder of this city. Situated 1,299ft above the Guanabara Bay, the Pao de Acucar or the Sugarloaf Mountain as the tourists know it, provides a superlative view of the city

In summer, Morro de Urca hosts concerts in the evening, which you can stop by and listen on your way up to the Sugarloaf Mountain.

This city is famous for its street parties, better known as Carnivals. Replete wih street bands, marching bands, and dance troupes, these Carnivals are sure to make you shake a leg too.

This should seal it: Tourism industry’s favorite beach in the world, the Copacabana Beach, is right here.

Need another? The first stop of every visitor in the city is at the statue of Christ the Redeemer or Cristo Redentor as the countrymen know it. At 125 ft, the statue of Christ stands tall over the city, as if saying “I’ll protect you”. The statute is located at the top of the Corcovado Mountain, and was inaugurated in the year 1931. This larger-than-life statue of the Christ is truly awe-inspiring. Perhaps that is the reason why the statue has been included in the New Seven Wonders of the World.
