Hidden Symbols

Throughout history, the white dove has symbolized peace, loyalty, innocence, purity, love, life, and spirit. In the Church of St, John Lateran, as we walked through the enormity of the basilica, each niche contained massive tombs, sculptures, writings, each with their own message. Yet atop each niche, mostly unnoticed to most were sculpted doves amid the history quietly keeping watch, sending a message of spirit safeguard over all. Our lives may be much like the presence of the dove in St. John Lateran Basilica in Rome…the spirit omnipresent remains real, but rarely noticed amid all the daily frenzy.
