Corpus Christi Cathedral

My sister and I had heard that the Corpus Christi Cathedral was a beautifully built church in downtown Corpus Christi, Texas so while we were in town we decided to visit and see for ourselves.  Oh, yes, it is beautiful.  According to records the church congregation is over a century old.  The current cathedral was built in the early 1940's.  It has very high ceilings and a magnificent pipe organ in the balcony.  The stained glass windows are exquisite.  There is a chapel located in an alcove off to one side of the sanctuary.  We visited during a week day and the entire sanctuary was silent and inspirational.  We paused for a few minutes to gather our thoughts, sit in the pews and reflect on all things beautiful.  What a blessing.
