This is St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. I took this picture while on an academic-related trip there in January of last year.

Now minus my baptism as a newborn and recognition of Christmas and Easter (the birth and resurrection of Jesus), I’m not particularly Christian in any serious way. However, I do have a special place for houses of worship. They have a special energy to them that cannot be ignored. So I was looking forward to entering this Catholic house of worship…where Pope John Paul II once was a guest.

The whole scene inside took my breath away…

You enter a house of worship and you feel the power of the Creator emanating from the room.
