Beautiful Churches

I've been wanting to post about this for awhile, but I haven't had a chance until today. We, as Catholics, have thousands of beautiful churches, cathedrals, and basilicas around the world. I want to share pictures of some of these.

Please comment below and leave links to information and pictures on some of your favorite Catholic Churches. Here's some of mine:

  1. The Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, which houses St. Louise and St. Catherines' bodies.
  2. The Basilica of St John Lateran
  3. Holy Name Cathedral
  4. Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception

I was at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception yesterday for the Rite of Election. Wow! The pictures on the websites do not do it justice. It was truly incredible to have the Rite of Election be the first time I was there, too.

(They do the Rite of Election there instead of St. Matthew the Apostle because it is bigger, I'm told.)

On one Catholic television show that I watched, Mary the Mother of Jesus was referred to as the Immaculate Conception; saying that she was concieved without sin. However
Christ is the only sinless being.

Romans 5:12

Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to ALL men, because all sinned.

Mary was sinless too because of Jesus. For the explanation, please see this link:

I have read your link moneybags, however i do not believe that all the support you give comes from Scripture. (Such as: Mary had to be perfect to have Jesus inside of her.) if i am correct, i believe you just came to that conclusion.
However, nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1:37.

Your blog was a long one, so if i failed to see something or misquoted you, please let me know.

Thank You.
