Protestant Cathedral

Cathedrals exalt the believer through a transcendent atmosphere. One must look up when there.

Meanwhile, parishioners can be adorned in worship.

One is built by man, another clothed of God. I don’t mean that one is necessarily better than the other, just that they are different. Protestant high churches are like the cathedral.

Protestant or Roman Catholic, either can be detached from the services. The high church parishioners can look down, lower church look up.

Having both is perhaps rare. But a looking-up and praising believer unites high and low.

This can veer into a Catholic-Protestant debate. That’s been done way too much. But I am not to say that either is the only correct way. You will know them by their fruits.

Previously, I had a combative opinion of Catholic practice and belief. My aunt in Brasil had a shrine, as does my friend’s wife. Are they something accompanied by genuine faith?

This question comes as I remember my youth in Catholic school. My mother and grandparents came here from Brasil and were decidedly anti-Catholic. This has permeated my mind.

Deep calls to deep no matter the church.
