Cathedral of praise is where i used to roam. I would search every nook and cranny of that place… But then i found the door. I found the door into a world that had so much to offer. A world that was never spoken of in a positive light within the Cathedral. Now my Cathedral has no doors. I praise everything i see around me. Now everything has it’s own beauty weather it be fleeting or eternal. The World is my Cathedral.

Cathedrals tend to be very elegant structures. I’ve seen many in Michoacan Mexico where my mother is from. Catholic churches have the best ones. The detail is maticulous.

a cathedral is a place of worship. A place to praise. A place to sing.
The crystral cathedral went bankrupt this year and is now a catholic church.
the glory of christmas.

The cathedral loomed above me, reaching into the clouds like a great, ancestral spectre. I tried to make out some of the engravings on the ageing stone closest to me, but I couldn’t quite make out the characters etched into the corroded stone. I considered the memoires that had unfolded here; the weddings and the funerals and the smiles and the tears. And I considered how times changed, and how it was like all these things were happening simultaneously, but not. And as I stood there and considered the unimportance of these moments, I realised that none of it mattered. Not at all.

A cathedral is a Christian church which contains the seat of a bishop, thus serving as the central church of a diocese, conference, or episcopate. Although the word “cathedral” is sometimes loosely applied, churches with the function of “cathedral” occur specifically and only in those denomination with an episcopal hierarchy, such as the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Orthodox, and some Lutheran and Methodist churches. In the Greek Orthodox Church, the terms kathedrikos naos (literally: “cathedral shrine”) is sometimes used for the church at which an archbishop or “metropolitan” presides. The term “metropolis” (literally “mother city”) is used more commonly than “diocese” to signify an area of governance within the church.

Grand swooping entrances. Ancient memories calling out to me.
What was this place where I felt in awe of such majesty?
Light and colour flooded my sense.

always wondered what qualifies a church as a cathedral, cos im pretty sure iv been in a church that’s been bigger than a cathedral so is it something other than sheer size?

Cathedrals are places of open tolerance to whatever religion they represent. Even if you are the most faithful atheist, you cannot help but to release a gasp when stepping into these places of inexplicable beauty and mystique.

Oh, how beautiful the cathedral stands, regal in its height, majestic in its mass. The bells, the door frames, the windows…Mother Mary standing, protecting us….what beauty.

cathedral. It’s a big church. Really all i can think about right now. I mean, come on, how else ya’ going to describe it? It’s got all the fancy stained glass and crap, but we use it for the same thing as a church!

My favorite song is saint peter’s cathedral by Death Cab. I also remember learning about it from my french teacher, as in the cathedrals in france. I visited one in dc, the one MLK jr. gave a sermon in. It was beautiful and breathtaking.

There was a silhouette of something great and dark looming over Christie as she climbed the mountain. As she reached it, she ran her hand around the dark green vines twisting and turning; the bricks older than her grandparents.

The cathedral was out in the countryside by itself, or so it seemed, because there were few buildings anywhere around. The cathedral’s exterior was those brown sandy blocks used in buildings everywhere.

The cathedral was quiet. Abandoned ages ago, little sound ever found its way there. Occasionally a cricket would cast its sad song, but then it would realize none were there to hear it so it, and the cathedral would be quiet once more.

The mighty cathedral is a monument to Christian architecture. In the shape of the cross, everything about this building is a reminder of Christ’s ultimate sacrifice on Calvary by taking our sins on himself, dying, and being resurrected.

A place where I can breathe. High ceilings that echo my thoughts. I find peace in the hushed silence and the loud whispers, in the idea that hundreds have come before me and hundreds will come after me and we will all share in a single moment of peace, very possibly without even knowing each other.

I want to get mrried in a nice cathedral. My mind is always racing about cathedrals. Cathedral is a funny word. Cathy comes to mind when i think of this word as well as birds and singing and Jeff Dunham for some reason. it just does. Oh my lordy i am so hyper. I want to run around a cathedral!!!!!!

A dark and dingy place lined the streets in it, lived the dreaded nightingale. He was the one killing the children in their sleep. And I knew that I had to stop him. His dangerous game of luring the children with his music was smart. He was almost like a pied piper, but worse. The cathedral was the place to look. That is where I would find him

And there’s an overwhelming feeling of starting below the dirt and working until I’ve reached the top of a chaotic cathedral of lies and deceit. Knowing that I’ll never see them again–it was worth it. But when the sun sets, and I’m left alone to hear the saddening chirping birds and slow breezes, I never know what to do with myself. Given no goals to meet, I lie awake and over-think myself to sleep every night. There’s a melancholy loveliness to the routine of silence that I will never get used to.

A cathedral is a place where people can worship. They can pray to God (or themselves if that’s how some see it), and find a place of peace where they feel a unique sense of calmness. But does one need to be in such an ornate place to see the beauty in life

the afternoon light caught the tips of the spires as I gazed up to the heavens. I needed a sign. The white dove flew down from the cathedral arch and landed at my feet. I tossed the birdseed out on the pavement and the pigeons besieged us.

There was a beautiful cathedral on the hill, and Mary looked up as she walked towards it after a long day. The sun set in the meadows the birds chirped, the grass grew long and longer and sweet sweet shadows filled the sky. The men found their way home as Mary walked to the cathedral, and the bells tolled and noises of night filled the air, but they were noises of beauty, not of catastrophe.

Cathedral. I had to look at the word very carefully as I typed it, as it’s a very hard word to spell. A very important word, nonetheless. What even is a cathedral? Something holy, I believe. Possibly to do with architecture.
By Shauna on 06.14.2012
Even though I am not Catholic, I have a huge respect for a Cathedral. They are very reverent and beautiful. Most are designed with stained glass and very intense details. A cathedral is often a place of refuge. Historical information originates from a cathedral from years gone by. Almost every town and city has a cathedral. Respected and reserved for years to come, a cathedral can be found. Beautiful weddings are held in a cathedral. Princess Diana to note was wed in a cathedral; taking vows to last to her death.

the church. the home of the lord. the place where I am always welcome,, always loved, always allowed to be me.
but that’s church, that’s not a cathedral. a cathedral is prim and proper and straight and right. there are no falters, no mistakes, no nothing but prim proper and straight.
but church.. church is home. church is love and life and togetherness forever. you could leave there for three years, come back, and they’ll love you the same. that is what church should be.

We do not build cathedrals anymore. We build boxes that do degrade quickly but not in a reusable way that can make more cathedrals. Unlike the citizens of the past, our built environments are not recording our history. Maybe the digital realm is the new cathedral. In this way, perhaps we are making masonry that is more transportable and more flexible and more transient, but does it settle down into the earth and give us a sense of place. No. It does not.

I saw a cathedral in Washington DC once. I didn’t think very much of it. All of the other cathedrals I’d ever seen were very old and important and you could name the old important influential guy who’d dreamed it up. I thought it was out of place in DC. This country is only a little over two hundred years old, and DC isn’t even as old as that. The cathedral wasn’t even as old as DC.

large and peaceful
high ceilings, large rooms
pillars and pews
amazing artwork and statues
quiet, calm, relaxing
somewhere you feel safe
they are also unsettling
dark hallways, creaky doors
busted windows, rotting floors
damp walls, ceilings that fall
secret tunnels, old staircases
sometimes the most beautiful things are also the most unsettling
By Alicja on 06.14.2012
Beautiful church, wonderful service, loving people, family, home, the cathedral is white and big and lovely and it’s spiraling and awesome, you are filled with wonder when you see it, it smells of incense and love and you can feel the presence of the holy spirit as you sit in the pew and pray to the lord in a moment of peace and tranquility. love is there. it is a loving place.

A place where people go to talk to someone that claims to be closer to God than they are. A monument to man for God or vice versa. Love left.
