Today an appointment was canceled while en route to it. Being in town anyway I decided that instead I would drive on and visit the Catholic Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Christchurch. On my first visit to this beautiful church I did not have any photo equipment with me. This time I did. Besides that I remembered how I enjoyed a quiet moment last time I visited. For those wondering what the difference is between a church and a cathedral:
I was extra lucky today, as there was a number of people taken on a guided tour and it allowed me to visit the gallery (sadly enough I was not able to go all the way up). My visit was refreshing, enjoyed a quiet moment in the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament and felt refreshed overall after that visit. The best lunch hour I spent in a long time. I can recommend it to anyone. While some pictures are attached to this post, I would recommend having a look at my Photostream for more pictures or perhaps visit the website of the Cathedral at http://www.chch.catholic.org.nz/?sid=207.
This Cathedral is most definitely worth a visit and a great way to enjoy something else during your lunch hour if you are into art, architecture, religion or just to enjoy a moment of quiet, peace, prayer or meditation.
