Welcome to the gates of hell?

This photo shows the Pope speaking before his general audience September 10 2014.

The official Vatican trade reported that Pope Francis greeted a paralyzed man.. There are several other photos from the day but this one I post just sort of stood out at me. Perhaps it’s because the scenery behind the people listening to Francis speak looked like the gates of hell opening, like fire engulfing the row of people who are peacefully listening to what Bergoglio as to say..

It’s actually a freakish image to me, to be honest. I am sure people smarter than me would know some of the deeper meanings that the statue encapsulates. But I don’t know if I want to know..
