Yes, Lou, it IS a beautiful picture. And it Does "make you think." But think What? Doves have always symbolized peace & gentleness. Historically; the Catholic Church has been anything But -- what with the Inquisition in the Middle Ages to the current covered-up violence of child abuse from priests to parishoner boys + the inhumanity of the Church in the first place to require celibacy OF priests & nuns, besides the vow of poverty to not have a LIFE outside the Church + the Church's continuing sexism
