Chiara wasn’t a tourist; this was a pilgrimage. Her friends called her “crazy” and her mother cried. Her quest entailed visiting each of the 139 churches in Venice plus a handful of synagogues.

She was lost. The canal filled with cargo-laden boats offered her a little help.

“Si, signorina, la chiesa di San Martino è lì,” the man on the boat gestured to a building right in front of her.

In the dimly lit church, it took a few minutes for her eyes to adjust and find a seat in a pew. She prayed, hoping God would grant her forgiveness.


Keep on writing.
