888. Rapture

888. Rapture
Definition: (n) feeling intense pleasure or joy
Location Placed: Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, St. Louis, Missouri
Date Placed: 12/20/18 at 2:32pm



The Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis is probably one of the most beautiful churches I've ever stepped foot in. The entire ceiling is covered with gorgeous mosaics of the grandest proportions. It's hard to describe the immensity of it. Larry, one of the fellows who works there, gave us a plethora of information about the number of tiles, immensity, level of work that went into it, and length of time it took. It was a definite labor of love, that is for sure! There were a number of different shades of gold tiles individually places to give the church a shimmery look, even when it was dark outside. Definitely an impressive sight to see!
