Saint Michael, the archangel defend us in battle.
Be our protection again the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
By the power of God, cast into Hell Satan and all evil spirits who prowl about he world seeking the ruin of souls.
my million village by Werner Böhm Via Flickr: The Parish Church of St Michael,
Berg am Laim
is one of the richest and most important religious buildings in the city of Munich, Germany.
The late baroque church was built in 1735-1751 by order of the Elector and Archbishop of Cologne Clemens August of Bavaria, designed by the Bavarian architect Johann Michael Fischer.
The interior of the church is considered a masterpiece of the Southern German rococo.
St. Michael’s Catholic Church - Grand Forks, North Dakota. We had the opportunity to visit Grand Forks, North Dakota in April. The weather was nice in North Dakota before we left Arizona, so we did not pack winter clothing. Boneheads!I had hoped to take lot of outdoor photos, but we were too cold. So, we focused on capturing a few of the indoor options we enjoyed - an awe inspiring church, delicious chocolate, healthy eating, a few outstanding brews, and even scotch eggs. Yes, we have eclectic tastes and interests! Grand Forks was a surprising gem; we look forward to visiting when we can capture a greater sample of it’s (indoor and) outdoor diversity.
Possibly the epitaph from a grave in my town, Workington that has stuck with me throughout the years about an unsolved murder victim by the name of Joseph Glandoning.
‘You villains if this stone you see Remember that you murder’d me You bruised my head & pierc’d my heart Also my bowels did suffer part’
Joseph’s body was discovered in 1808 on a public footpath that ran beside the beach between Harrington and Workington. He had suffered multiple stab wounds to all parts of his body. A reward of £50 was offered, but with no further information the inquest reached a verdict of ‘murder by person or persons unknown’ and Joseph was laid to rest with a mystery surrounding his death.
