Santa Fe, NM High 84 Low 53
We visited three churches in downtown Santa Fe. They are incredibly beautiful and definitely worth taking time to see.
This cathedral was built by Archbishop Jean Baptiste Lamy between 1869 and 1886.
St. Francis of Assisi – I’m not Catholic but he is my favorite Saint because he is the patron saint of animals.
The eight-sided form represents the 8th day, or Easter, The basin is a cruciform, with three steps representative of the 3 days between Jesus' crucifixion and his resurrection. The rill symbolizes the four Evangelists, who cast their nets to catch men.
It is just so beautiful. I couldn’t decide which pictures to post.
And then there is the modern touch.
