There’s No Chapel In The World Like This One In St. Louis
The first time I stepped in the Cathedral Basilica in St. Louis I was brought to tears. Although I am not Catholic, a Catholic friend asked if we could stop by the Cathedral on our lunch break. I am a woman of faith however, never before in my life have I felt so close to God as I did the day I walked into the Basilica of St. Louis. It truly was an overwhelming feeling, in fact I was compelled to kneel and pray. You don’t need to be a hardcore religious fanatic to be mesmerized by this stunning masterpiece and I suppose it affects everyone differently but, for me it took my breath away and left me speechless. I did not know what I was walking into beforehand or that it even existed. It was literally 20 years ago though and I still remember how I felt when I walked through the doors to this amazing church.
