Our Houses of the Holy
Where I celebrated Easter Sunday Mass yesterday, Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica:

French Canadians have a saying for when a place is packed with people. We say: "Y'a du monde à messe!" It was a very apt saying yesterday since the cathedral was packed to the rafters (upper level pews were quite full as well!):

The ceiling, built in 1872 and restored in 1999, is in the 16th century gothic style with gold-leaf stars:

A shot of the upper level pews on the opposite side of the nave where we were sitting:

From my pew facing up and back towards the choir loft. We were gifted with a full choir, the wonderful organ and a complete brass section for hymns during this Sunday Easter Mass.

A less crowded view of the altar once Mass was finished:

The altar of the Sacred Heart (devotional area with luminaries):

Damn me if I haven't already forgotten what INRI meant again.

It's a beautiful cathedral. I hope I get to see one some day.

Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

You only say that you knew it, while you only assumed it.

Don't be so German about it, Phleg. ;)

We must dissent.

I came across this picture of this beautiful church on FB through a group link. It's rather gorgeous I think.

Looks like a missile launcher.

"And now if a whole nation fell into that? In such a case, I answer, infallibly they will return out of it. For life is no cunningly-devised deception or self deception, it is a great truth that thou art alive, that thou hast desires, necessities: neither can these subsist and satisfy themselves on delusions, but on fact. To fact, depend on it, we shall come back: to such fact, blessed or cursed, as we have wisdom for."
