This last weekend, I went on a trip to New York City. One of our visits was St. Patrick's Cathedral, a beautiful Catholic cathedral. Now I'm not Catholic, but it was an amazing experience.
First of all, the church is beautiful. There are many places to light candles. It's very quiet and respectful. What I first noted was the great atmosphere of faith in the church. I really felt like God was there, listening to everyone who was praying there. It was such an amazing feeling. The second amazing thing i noticed, was that everyone was praying together. Within my group, there were Catholics, Presbyterians, and Lutherans all sitting together and praying. It reminded me that even with everything that's going on around the world, people still come together. There doesn't have to be fighting, arguing, or violence. Sharing a faith in God brings people together, and it's such an amazing event to witness. I believe that I saw Jesus in every one of those people there in that church.
I highly suggest visiting St. Patrick's Cathedral if you're in New York City.
Also, I apologize for not having written in a long time.
