Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna
Several years back, I did share a few photographs from St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna during my very first visit there sometime in 2010. I’ve had the privilege of returning last year with my family, and we took quite a number of photographs. Here are a few of them.
“It seemed she was in a cathedral—if, that is, the earth itself were to dream a cathedral into being over thousands of years of water weeping through stone.”
― Laini Taylor,
“I never weary of great churches. It is my favorite kind of mountain scenery. Mankind was never so happily inspired as when it made a cathedral.”
― Robert Louis Stevenson
“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.”
― Kahlil Gibran,
“I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.”
― Martin Luther
I’d like to think of myself as the prodigal daughter of Freud, going back to re-experience the beauty of Wien yet again.
