Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Fan Wang

Life is a spiritual journey. And a traveller on his journey needs light. It was Pentecost, and Mass in the Cathedral of St John the Baptist, Norwich was just ended. I was about to pray Rosary when I saw a girl a few pews away taking pictures. A "been there, done that" thing, maybe. But then I looked up, and saw these most amazing rays of light coming in through the windows, shining upon the rood and the nave. The place had become very bright. I felt prompted to reach out for my camera that was just able to capture the scene. It was a blessing.

Location: Cathedral of St John the Baptist, Norwich, Norfolk, East Anglia, UK
