The Way and the Light

11/11/00: Sommocolonia, Italy

Inside Church

Today, the sun actually shone for one whole day. (It’s otherwise been more like November in Minnesota.)

Sommocolonia’s church dates back to the 1100s. But it’s been around the chopping block a few times since then, including near-destruction on 12/26/44. On that day, in these streets, a Resistance army of many nationalities stopped the Nazis in their tracks. Repairs to the church—including the modern floor—help cement the generations and tell the stories.
