the Cathedral as it was (360 view)

Jan 22, 2013

In recent months, the news reports have suggested that it is unlikely that the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament can be rebuilt after the devastating earthquakes. At best there is the possibility of saving two walls (that are able to be saved) as a memorial.

This week I discovered again this wonderful 360 degree view. Use the cursor to navigate (up to see the wonderful ceiling and down for the floor).  Also note the menu in the top left corner that give a different view (from the choir (balcony), aisle or altar). The menu at the centre bottom of the image gives further control, especially the far right button for full screen.

While the architecture is unique and beautiful, the real beauty of the building was always seen during the celebration of the Mass when the Cathedral was filled with parishioners of the diocese at prayer.
