From decadence to holiness, I was able to find a bit of heaven while on my trip to LA. We were actually walking somewhere else when we came across this cathedral. I guess it is the biggest in the United States, and it was spectacular. I know the pictures don’t give it justice, but if I lived in LA, I certainly would attend mass here. Beyond the beauty and grandeur, the quiet and holiness was actually palpable and the calm and peace washed over me. It was wonderful just to stop and pray for a moment. I’ve seen many ancient cathedrals around the world, and this modern one felt as awe-inspiring as any other. It was a highlight for me.
