Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis

I had figured I'd miss mass this weekend because of traveling to St. Louis and my own complete inability to plan ahead. However, I discovered that the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louiswas only a mere 4.1 miles away in 100 degree weather. I needed to clear my head so I went for a walk. I managed to arrive just in time for communion drenched in sweat. I suppose it was better than missing it completely.

The Basilica, on the other hand, was beautiful. I grew up in a church that was functional. I'm not saying it was ugly. It just wasn't built for beauty in the same way that the Basilica was. St. Joe in Pewamo was nice but again it was built for functionality. The Basilica is completely different. It is the kinda church you think about as being Europe or something like that. It has the mosaics and stone you don't really see most places. I highly recommend stopping by if you're ever in the area. They do have tours and a museum but just go to one of the masses.
