la iglesia


I went to church here this morning.

I don’t even have words to describe this experience. I wish pictures could do this Cathedral justice, because this experience really was worth a thousand words.

Everything about the service and the church was grand and powerful. The songs were in Latin, played on a beautiful pipe organ with music that filled the room. The whole experience made me feel so small. Now, being a petite person in general, I usually feel small. But that is one of the things I love about life, feeling so small in the presence of so many great things. That is why I love the beach so much, just to share an existence with the massive expanse of the ocean. I love being so small and insignificant in size, but then remembering how I have such worth and meaning in the eyes of God.
That is how being in this cathedral makes you feel. Tiny. Barely a speck of dust on the face of the earth in the face of something so ornate and massive. Yet I could literally feel the years of history that had passed in this sacred space, taking part in a liturgical service that so many people have taken part in before me, and will take part in years to come. We happened to go to the Cathedral de Sevilla on the Sunday of the Festival of Lights, and we lit candles and followed the leadership of the church as we “Marched in Peace” around the inside of the sanctuary. It was a bit of a magical experience, getting a little private candlelit tour with the rest of the congregation. Marchemos en paz.

If only I could have documented that experience, and the pictures could express the grandiose nature of the Cathedral, and the organ music and chants of the clergy could be heard.

I guess you will just have to come experience it for yourself.

Fui a la iglesia aquí este mañana.

No hay palabras describir la experiencia, especialmente mis palabras en español. Ojalá que los fotos pueden describir algo, porque mi experiencia era tan fantástico.

La misa era muy poderoso y mágico. Los canciones eran en latín, y usaban el organ grande acompañar todos canciones. Sentaba muy pequeño a causa de este experiencia. Bueno, entiendo que soy baja y más pequeñita de la mayoridad de personas, pero eso es algo que me encanta. Me gusta sentir pequeño en la prevención de algo grande y maravilloso, como el mar. Me encanta sentir pequeño y insignificante, cuando realmente yo se que Dios es lo más grande y maravilloso, y soy significante en sus ojos.
Eso es como yo sentía en el catedral. Muy insignificante en un lugar masivo y decoraciones extravagantes. Pero podía sentir todos años de historia, alabanzas, y adoración en este espacio sagrado durante la misa. Por suerte, o bendición, estábamos al Catedral primera vez durante el Festival de Luz, y cada persona tenía un velo y marchábamos en paz por todo el catedral después los líderes de la iglesia. Era un momento mágico tener un tour de catedral con las velas y sacerdotes. Marchábamos en paz.

Ojalá que se puede visitar el catedral y tiene un momento como así.

    Hola, chica. Me ha dicho Carmen que tú has cantado en una iglesia medieval y que fue una bendición espiritual y mística.
