This week I’m feeling a little nostalgic after a loss in my family. Attending a Catholic funeral brought back some memories of my childhood and figured I’d just go with the stuff on my mind.
My Doors entry for the week is our local Sacred Heart Church. According to a local historian, it was dedicated in 1893. The style is Gothic like the European cathedrals of the 13th century.
The inside is exceptionally beautiful. Maybe photos sometime after I ask permission?
A view looking up. Sedalia, Missouri has some real treasures.
Cornerstone laid 1892.
Some side notes:
- I first entered these doors with my childhood babysitter. She is the one biggest influence leading to my adult life. Loved her like my second mother. I can pretty much blame her for my chosen career path. Miss her so.
- My grandfather, father and his brothers were all local painters and at some point or other were hired to paint in, on and around Sacred Heart Church and it’s other buildings. But that cross on the top was only tackled by one of my uncles. He was the only one brave enough to climb it. Don’t worry OSHA. This was before you were formed. His story I’ll save for another day…..after I find that photo of him.
