Havana Cathedral

Our pilgrimage group had Mass here with the Cardinal Archbishop of Havana -- it was a tremendous experience.

Recently restored, the outside shines in cleanliness.

The stone is coral taken from the bottom of the sea.  In fact, fossils of sea urchins can still be seen in the stone.

A fascinating church to visit and a lovely place to pray.  Cuban baroque is quite simple, as you can see.  Christopher Columbus was formerly entombed here.  

We build cathedrals to declare before men the mighty things of God.
