Memento Mori

"Remember we are mortal"

Rome, Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini.
Everything is made of the bones and skeletons of the Capuchin monks.

"What you are now, we once were
what we are now, you shall be."

I don't know why, but this phrase touches me very deeply, in a macabre way..
