 The Cathedral of the Transfiguration.
It blessed by Pope John Paul II in 1984.
Across from the pond where Buddy and I
walk. It is very magnificent yet mysterious.
Sadly none of its many bells chime from it because it is deserted.
There is no activity of a religious nature at the site.
The bishop moved out in 2006 because of ownership issues.
Who knew that every cathedral is headed by a bishop? 
A film 'In the Mouth of Madness' used its exterior.
Developers built homes around it as Cathedraltown.
   What is the future of this architectural marvel?            
                                     New reflection
           Thanks for supporting my blogging Brenada.


  1. An interesting theme you have for your blog. If you lived where I lived you would be blogging almost daily, lol. Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment about our stadium's retractable roof. I think the new roof will be more functional but also the old roof was becoming unsafe. It had collapsed several years ago and there was a lot of controversy over whether it could actually be used for the Olympic purposes. Of course people did not want to spend the kind of money we are now having to spend in addition to what was spent on the Olympics and also there wouldn't have been enough time to replace it before the Olympics were here.

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by [Life of Meg] - so happy to have you!

  3. Hello, I like the reflection of the cathedral - so difficult to fathom why such a beautiful piece of architecture would stand vacant. Good luck on your video - so much to learn in this age of technology.

  4. Well if you make a video as well as you take pictures, it will be fantastic.

    I love that I got a personal mention. The teenagers call it a "shout-out," so thanks for the shout-out and I await with anticipation the video and the green cycle.

    The reflections are stunning. absolutely great picture.

  5. What a stunningly beautiful cathedral! And what a shame it lies abandoned.

    Thanks for sharing. :)
