Called to be More highlights -- #6
Highlight #6 – Beauty of church architecture.
It was an amazing gift to see 30 churches in one week’s time within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. In general, the pilgrims seemed most captivated by the older church buildings, whose stained glass windows, high altars, painted ceilings and large statues captivated their imaginations and invited them to turn their thoughts heavenward. There is something remarkable about the ability of a beautiful church to raise our gaze to the Author of all beauty. Soaking ourselves with so much beauty in one week’s time will surely have an impact on all of us.
