St. Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna soars above the city rooftops.
This Cathedral is a masterpiece of Gothicism..
The south tower stands at 137 m high.
We walked in with a feeling of awe and respect.
Many people were standing there just like us, gazed with their eyes fixed
on the architect and the interior design.
Many tiny tea light candles were lit to commemorate
those loved ones that have passed on.
We also lit a candle in honoring both of our Mother's
especially in honor of Mother's Day.
Then I saw a powerful symbolic picture.
Here was a man kneeling in devoted prayer.
I watched him for a long time and wondered...
How I remembered the times as a little girl,
that my grandmother would kneel by my bedside and pray with me.
Somehow kneeling is not practiced often today.
These beautiful masterpieces soar above the cities and towns.
But so many churches were empty, cold and often closed.
On the outside of this cathedral was a banner that read.
"Jesus Christ Today, Yesterday and Forever."
Take some time out today for Jesus and yoursef.
