PHOTO FRIDAY: GRANDEUR

Photo Friday: Grandeur is this weeks challenge.  See link for other entries to the challenge.  I took these photos as part of my series of Churches Around Pittsburgh.

SAINT PAUL CATHEDRAL

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA

THE CHURCH

“And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband; Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God. God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.” –Revelation 21: 2-4

Below is a definition for grandeur from Merrian-Webster’s Dictionary:
