St. Mary’s Church is a large building indeed. There is a lot of space around the church, adding to the peaceful feeling. The roses in different colors are quite beautiful.

  2. It is a beautiful church! I am always impressed with magnificent stained glass windows, but what really enthused me was the painted pipes of the organ.

      And the painted pipes of the organ caught my attention well. It was one of the highlights :)

  6. Perhaps you should consider leaving the lies and enslavement of the religious paradigm and live as a Free Man in the Light of Truth. Without guilt and hate. Perhaps.

    1. Not perhaps, but indeed! Indeed, everyone needs to leave religion behind, and take peace and harmony with nature forward.
