Cathedral Of St.Paul
Today, I took a tour ( along with my Family and my Mom) of the Cathedral Of St. Paul. Built in 1904, it is a stunning sight. The intricate craftsmanship of the marble and sculpture really makes you appreciate how much work was put into this grand place of worship.
The tour guides throughout the Cathedral told stores of the history of the church and of a era long before todays modern style churches. I love history, and this place did not lack it in the least.
What I took away from this visit was how many different cultures contributed to the building of this dramatic structure. Financially and Physically. It was built by the people of Minnesota and by all walks of life.
Just like your typical parish, rich,poor, privileged, and down on luck. This was a place for sanctuary.
I found peace in it today. I feel blessed.
