I was taught this isn’t how it’s supposed to be. All these ornaments and gold. But the truth is, I hadn’t stepped into my church in years and the beauty of this one is what brought me in. Maybe that’s why it’s so visually and structurally impressive. It’s artwork. Beautiful hands made these things as a symbol of faith, at least that’s what I’d like to believe. Whether it’s right or wrong in the bible, the faith is still there to create this. I think I’ll say one more prayer before I leave. Hopefully it’s as beautiful as this empty cathedral is.
