christ church cathedral. so beautiful. founded c. 1030. that’s old.
the famous st. patrick’s cathedral. it is said that here, on the ground where this cathedral is today, is where patrick first baptized some of the irish… the same people who kidnapped him when he was a teenager and treated him as a slave. he returned after he was set free to share with them a message of love & forgiveness. he met them where they were, as they were (pagans), and used their traditions to teach them about jesus. if only christians today could follow patrick’s example…
this is a cool mural depicting the last supper, but modernized. women, men, multicultural, truly diverse. super cool!
celtic high cross. love them.
st. george’s park.
trinity college. i got to see the book of keels!!!
(it’s a famous bible, illustrated and written by monks around the 4th century. they spent their whole lives working on it. and today, it is a work of art. stunning!)
