I love welcoming the sun in the morning, especially as the brilliant pink and orange colors fill the sky over the big, white lighted cross on the hill. The lights of the cross go off at 6 am. You can barely make it out in this photo ...
At night, the cross comes on at 9 pm, as we say goodbye to the sun and the lights of the towns along the Miseno coast begin to twinkle.
"Now that the daylight dies away,
By all thy grace and love,
Thee, Maker of the world, we pray
To watch our bed above.
Let dreams depart and phantoms fly,
The offspring of the night,
Keep us, like shrines, beneath thine eye,
Pure in our foe’s despite.
This grace on thy redeemed confer,
Father, co-equal Son,
And Holy Ghost, the Comforter,
Eternal Three in One."
