The church is vast and cool, even when crowded. The sermon caught the congregation's interest. The huge Stations of the Cross were life-like and one could almost live in the moment of each one.

If you look at the Priests house Italian arches you will see the Bishops heads. It was there to be the Cathedral for the Catholic Church and a Bishop to live there. Many pretenders to the THRONE have had DREAMS of Purple socks vanish. Both...More
