The Journey And The Destination

Big dreams, detailed endeavors and lofty aspirations don’t just take time but trust.

Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is one of the most beautiful and intricate Gothic Revival buildings of the 19th Century. It took 21 years to build and was finally opened to the public in 1879.

The church takes up one whole city block in Midtown Manhattan. The spires rise 330 feet above street level. It seats 2,400 people. The cornerstone of the Cathedral was laid in 1858. It has more than 2,800 stained glass panels. The new gallery organ, which was replaced in 1930, has 7,855 pipes.

The Cathedral has 21 altars and 19 bells, each named after a different saint.

So many details, so much history and dedication to create one of the most stunning buildings of our time but not without struggle. The building of the cathedral was halted numerous times. Wars, lack of funding, troubles and discouragements tried but could not stop its final completion. The cathedral is breathtaking to behold with its history and beauty. If you look closely you can almost see the lives of the masons with every etched stone and hear the stories of the carpenters in every carved pew. The life of the cathedral’s all but easy creation is an important part of its completion. It speaks of determination and perseverance, faith and hope. The struggles didn't stop the growth…

Trust that the journey you’ve embarked on is also a part of the destination. Beauty happens in the process.

Don’t miss the details in the journey… God works ALL things together for the good of those who love and trust Him and His timing is perfect.
