Praise and beauty are before Him:
holiness and majesty in His sanctuary.
On Saturday, Ryan, Cruncher and I visited St. Mary's Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption in Covington, Kentucky. I don't think any of us knew what we were in for when we walked through those doors. It. Was. Just. Gorgeous — FULL STOP. I'll let my camera do the talking. Lots and lots of talking. Some short captions are mixed in, so watch for them.
|The largest church stained-glass window in the world, outside and inside views.|
|The view from the front doors.|
|The tintinnabulum and umbraculum for if a pope ever visits.|
|I like the window in the center, showing the Nativity, paired with the station below, Jesus Meets His Mother.|
|Center: Rose window and main organ.|
|Blessed Sacrament Chapel with Frank Duveneck murals.|
|St. John Vianney, pray for my godsons!|
|Two organs and two rose windows.|
|Altar and with largest church stained-glass window.|
|The view up was my favorite.|
|The stations are mosaic, from Venice, Italy.|
|And then my camera battery died. True story.|
