Spire On Sunday

As its Sunday today I thought I'd go with a bit of Religion. This is the spire of St Gregory's Catholic Church. I posted a photo of the doorway the other day (thanks for all the comments about that) and I promised to show a bit more. I'm not a religious person but I am always amazed by the craftsmanship that went into the building of churches and cathedrals. To think that these solid stone buildings were built hundreds of years ago, with none of the modern technology of today, its mind boggling how they did it.

Whether you're off to church today or not, enjoy your day of rest.

Oh yes, just thinking about how they did those buildings without cranes and elevators is awe-inspiring.

Have a good Sunday too!

Hi, and thanks for visiting my blog! I like your photo today, and the phone one yesterday! I'll be posting some photos of Meteora from our Greece trip reasonably soon.

Fantastci image. The spire reaching for the sky is well magnificent. I agree, not about to find religion and rush in, but I admire the craftmanship. They do make such wonderful images.

They didn´t have the technology but they had time and skill. I´m not much of a churchgoer myself either, but I always like good architecture.

Happy Sunday to you too. Am catching up on chores today because the weather is expected to extra hot and
humid. The last three days have been very pleasant with low humidity. I guess all good things must come to an end.

What a beautiful spire! I love church/religious architecture. If the buildings could talk, can you imagine the stories they would tell?

That's the same question I ask myself whenever I am in any of those churches.

Sunday is never long enough. Hope you had a great day.
