Caelum Sidereum

Anonymous said: So I've been praying to God and asking him to speak to me. When I asked this I was on my knees and when I asked this I got this overwhelming feeling. Like my stomach dropped and like I felt sick as if I had butterflies. I told him I was surrendering myself to him. Could this mean something? Any related experiences ? Any thoughts? I always respect your input.

I don’t really know what to tell you anon! I have never experienced anything like this before. I don’t doubt your sincerity or the authenticity of your experience. If you truly believe it was God that you encountered spiritually, then continue to pray to Him and ask Him for guidance, as He is the only one who can properly lead you. Maybe it’s an incentive to pray more! God Bless, anon.

The Assumption of the Virgin, 1526
Correggio 

When I was a child, I remember staring at this image in a book that my parents had and pretending that I was ascending into Heaven myself. When looking at the painting, you really do get the sensation of rising closer and closer to God. I can only imagine how it would feel to stand in the Parma Cathedral, looking up at this glorious masterpiece. 
This continues to be one of the most awe-inspiring things I have ever seen.
