...Miseremini mei....

 

Miseremini mei = pity on me

Memorare novissima tua et in eternum non peccabis = part of the well-known instruction in Ecclesiasticus 7:40: ‘In all thy works, remember thy last end, and thou shalt never sin’ (trans. Douay-Rheims). (text found on a website from the University of Cambridge)

These pictures were taken on our un-expected visit to the Crypt underneath the San Simeone Piccolo.

For €2 we were given a flashlight and off we went 'to the center of the earth', for some reason it was NOT creepy and no we did not see any ghosts, though there was a lot of energy down there ........

 

Not knowing Ginnie shows this (link) today...

This looks like an interesting place to visit.

I hope the energy you felt down there was positive!
Picturit: This was quite unexpected that we ended up here. We were not able to tell what kind of energy but we did feel 'cozy'....
Ginnie shows this today. http://ginniehart.shutterchance.com/image/2017/05/01/its-monday/
Astrid.
Good heavens! smile
Picturit: You can say that again, Larry, what a place and what a history.
Astrid.
Wow - Amazing! And your photo's are really something, considering the lighting! Did they let you wonder unescorted?
Picturit: I had to hold my camera in two hands AND the flashlight, I left my third hand in the hotel...
Yes, amazing, considering we were NOT allowed to take any pictures in the church....we were downstairs at least over half an hour.....
Astrid.
PS Ginnie's picture is in an other corridor. http://ginniehart.shutterchance.com/image/2017/05/01/its-monday/

Love this, Astrid, even though mini mei seems very like Mini Me who was a small version of a bigger person in a rather silly movie I saw some years ago.
Picturit: I think you got lost in translation here, Ray... wink
This was truly an amazing place to visit.
Astrid.
Spooky, interesting and intriguing, Astrid, you did a good job at those speeds. smile
Picturit: This was great to 'investigate' and d a r k.... I had some problems with holding the camera and the flashlight in two hand...left my third hand in the hotel wink..
Thank you, Frank.

What an opportunity, Astrid. Did you really guide yourselves around?
Picturit: Yes indeed and we took many picture though in the church we wer not allowed to take any.... it was a great experience.
Astrid.
Who knew we'd be on the same page today! I love it. We really did find a treasure that day!!!
Picturit: Just a coincidence and yes this was a very social occasion to close our time in Venice......

Very interesting Astrid, I would have loved to take a look at this place
Picturit: I think you would have a hay day down their, there were 8 corridors and all very interesting. Amazing that after all the years the frescos were visible.....

Oh, this is very impressive and moving - I want to visit this crypt when I'll be in Venice three weeks later, we 'll stay at a hotel in Cannaregio. Yesterday I while for hours on your blog 'In Soul'- wonderful!
Picturit: You will love it Philine, it is the church on the opposite of the railway station, and not to far from Cannaregio, the entrance of the crypt is on the right side IN the church, 2 euros for the flashlight....
Ginnie does great job with her blog.

Its amazing. I love the idea that you could discover this for yourself just using a flashlight rather tan being on a guided tour. I can just image the fun of that and turning a see the skeleton especially.
Picturit: It was a delight to be there with just the two of us and all the time in the world...... we made some great discoveries, I think that Philine will visit this place in 3 weeks, she will enjoy it too.
Astrid.
What a fine hidden treasure Lady P
Picturit: Indeed so, Bill, I think that Philine will go there in three weeks, she will love it.
Astrid.
Quite a sober reminder of where we are all heading Astrid.
Picturit: Indeed so, Chad.... I try not to think about that.....
Astrid.
That first shot is wonderful, the ghostly figure disappearing into a fog.
Picturit: Indeed so, make the fog, the damp area in which Venice is.... we were impressed with how much was still visible

These underground places are well decorated - unexpectedly so.
Picturit: We were so impressed with how well this was still visible, I was glad for the flashlight though, we heard that it use to be with a candle.....
Astrid.
What an opportunity to get to see this! I love when things like this just happen! A fabulous addition to all the sights you two got to see!
Picturit: Robin, this was so special, we were at the railway station buying tickets for the next day, we saw the church. Okay, one more church as a goodbye.....what a church that turned out to be.... who would have thought.

I have been in several churches over here where skeletal displays like this can be seen.
Picturit: in every church I was, there are always skulls or skeletons... the crypt was something else.
Astrid.
Fascinating stuff!
Picturit: It is, Tom, we were pleasantly amazed by the beauty of the crypt.
Astrid.
