I’m going to try to post some photos that I took at Belmont on Saturday. I’m very disappointed that my photos from inside the basilica — of the beautiful Mary, Help of Christians, and the wonderful organ pipes — didn’t turn out well. I’m a slow independent learner of technology, and I’ve had this camera less than a month! First, a photo of the Abbey itself, where the monks and priests reside; the first floor is “public” area with guest rooms and offices and the Abbey refectory (dining room) and the monks and priests live on the second and third floors. Yes, it is a very l-o-n-g building!
