Light In The Darkness

A little girl lights a candle to the Virgin Mary in the Moakalla, otherwise known as the Hanging Church because it was built in the 7th century suspended over the gate of a Roman fortress, likely on the site of an even older church. When you visit this famous Coptic church, there are windows through which you can look through the floor to see the walls of the fortress far below your feet.
