    One never tires of Catholic beauty.

    Here in North Carolina, the Catholic presence is growing, but at least in my area, there aren't a lot of magnificent Catholic churches. When I've had the opportunity to travel and visit places like this, I've been swept up by the beauty.We can worship anywhere – including in the all-purpose building that serves as my "home church" – but churches like the one you've pictured here are a treasure. Thank you for sharing it!

    Trastevere: trans-tevere, across the Tiber.Speaking of NC churches, the Catholic Church in downtown Asheville is very striking and unusual. It was built by Italian craftsmen who came here to build Biltmore. It has an elliptical plan and a dome overhead done in a herringbone pattern buff glazed brick, which matches the ceiling in Biltmore's conservatory. It's a beautiful Italian bubble in the Blue Ridge.Don't visit Biltmore without also going to the church.

    I'm afraid that this is a picture of the interior of Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, not Santa Maria in Trastevere.
