But then, you see the other photos of this fantastic church.  It’s not even a Cathedral, though generally speaking the only physically distinguishing factor for a Cathedral is that if purpose built, it’s bigger.

But look at that. NICE church.

Then you see the front.

Oh, and let’s not forget the tower.

Now that is a building built for God’s greater glory.

    1. Yes! I find is so strange that with our advanced technology and computer modeling we have entirely forgotten how to appeal to the observer in place. We do not command the landscape, we merely add to it with the architectural equivalent of shock value. The only way God enters into it is when you say, “Heavens, what they won’t think up next…” I’m even talking about churches! Modernism has been doing this for over 100 years now. Our palette should be larger than monochrome.
