Sagrada Familia: Longinos and the Sacred Spear

Sagrada Familia: Longinos and the Sacred Spear


Ask me how I feel now. I had prepared an inspired post about the legend of Longinos the character in my picture and I was using Picasa function called Blog This. After more than an hour of work, I click on publish and there it goes down the drains. Can I swear here? So now I can only "thank" Blogger and Picasa for the big help. 
Summary: Cayo Casio Longinos was the soldier who pierced the dead body of Christ with a spear, the sacred spear. His eyesight was impaired but he got cured when splashed by the gushing blood coming out of Jesus wound. Converted to the faith he went on a pilgrimage carrying a metal cup, containing the blood, which is also known as the Holy Grial. You can see more pictures of the Passion Fa├žade here and some more information in my previous post about the gates of this Sagrada Familia portal.

  2. I tried out the same tools and let´s just say I can understand the feeling you had.

    It turned up really good anyway, nice photo. But I loved the one of the Barcelona forum. I got to visit Barcelona one day, I have books about Gaudis work and... well, just got to see them =)
