Cardboard Cathedral

Some days ago Gail and I visited the Cardboard (Pro-) Cathedral. There are some photographs below.

The interior is plain, and simple. Gone is all the ornate interior design and links to the past. Gone too is the opportunity for object and ancestor worship of 19th and early 20th century architecture and citizens.  Standing in the middle of the new building it felt like having gone from a mausoleum to a place of the living.
