An Easter Window

Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, California.


This new cathedral was built just ten years ago after the old one was condemned as the result of the 1994 earthquake which devastated many older buildings all over Los Angeles County.  Its 27,000 square feet of windows are made of alabaster.  Even seen from outside in the courtyard, these windows are wonderful and wondrous.


Happy Easter and Happy Passover!

That is an amazing piece of architecture - it looks like it's magically suspended in mid air. Wow!
Happy Easter to you and yours!

I took a drive around on Saturday also looking for various churches with crosses.
Each worship place has it's own unique settings.
May the blessings of Easter linger in your heart.

This is certainly an original looking window! I like the way it blends with the roofline.

The window extends out from the building - thus really highlighting the cross from the inside and out. A unique window, a great building!
