A couple days ago Slovaks celebrated "Day of Blessed Virgin Mary," or "Day of our Lady of Sorrows." It's a holiday here where everyone has the day off and many Catholics pray, feast, and give thanks to Mother Mary.
Jas and I wanted to check it out and see how they were celebrating the day, so we decided to head downtown and get a glimpse at some of the churches. We observed that many were in attendance at mass.
A poor quality camera phone pic-but this was taken from the window inside one of the churches.
A common scene often observed outside of the churches here. People exiting and the homeless are there waiting.
If only Jesus were celebrated as much as Mary is...
In other news, I also decided it was high time (well, rather past time) to get some shots of the city we live in. So here are some random shots of Bratislava!
