ST. PATRICK’S CATHEDRAL

St. Patrick’s Cathedral opened over 130 years ago in 1879 and it is truly a work of art. Follow me to have a look inside this time capsule located on the busiest of New York streets.

St. Patrick's Cathedral

You have to tilt your head alllll the way back to see the top of this Gothic marvel.

And the stained glass… mercy me. The stained glass is what dreams are made of.

If only we could have been blessed by the music of the pipe organ. What a treat that would have been!

I wanted to be reverent and respectful, ,especially since I am Protestant and not Catholic.

I walked solemnly around the cathedral trying to soak it all in.

I lit 3 candles while inside the church.

One for Grandma Eileen, one for my father, and one for my family at the altar of St. Jude. St. Jude is the Patron Saint of Lost Causes. I felt that it was both slightly witty and entirely appropriate.

On my way out of St. Patrick’s Cathedral I said a secret prayer that I will keep in my heart for years to come.

Until next time,

Carly
