Cathedrals - Repositories of the Spirit
It is curious how people seek out Cathedrals. On Wednesday evening in the Chapter Room, during a meeting, someone put their head around the door and asked if they could have a look upstairs in the Cathedral. He was the guide for a group of Polish tourists and they had been delayed in their travels, arriving well after the Cathedral had been locked up for the night. It was no problem for me to leave the meeting and take them upstairs.
My thoughts shifted to the scenes inside and out of Notre Dame after the Daesh murders this week - so-called secular France and yet people flocked to Notre Dame. The cathedral is a repository of the Spirit ... that thought warms my heart.
