Urban landscapes: the silent place of worship
THE CATHEDRAL OF ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST, ST. JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND
The Anglican parish was established in 1699 in one of the oldest cities in North America. Construction of this building began in 1847; the cathedral was among many structures extensively damaged by the Great Fire of 1892. By 1905, all the repairs were complete and in 1981, the cathedral was designated a National Historic Site.
I was blessed to spend an hour, all by myself, in the mystical silence of this atmosphere. In such a place, one’s heart cannot help but turn towards the glorious, mysterious Divine. (Here’s a vertical view of the cathedral, in colour: http://bit.ly/StJohnsCathedral).
