Tomb of St. Mark in Venice

It was an honor to kneel here at the foot of the altar and to pray.

In this church one really feels the presence of God.  It is like traveling back in time to a IV century church.

Mark is said to have been martyred in Alexandria, Egypt.  Two Venetian sailors brought his remains to Venice.  He is entombed inside the main altar of the Basilica of San Marco.
