National Cathedral Photos and Good Friday Haiku

National Cathedral Exterior
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved." Romans 10:9-10 NIV

A blessed Good Friday to all those observing this holy day! Praise God for He is holy and yet so filled with love that He sent His Son to die in our place so we might live forever with Him!

I thought this would be an appropriate day to share my National Cathedral photos and I hope they bless you. If you're planning a visit, entrance to the National Cathedral is still currently free on Sundays but there is now an admissions charge for other days. You can also join their traditional worship services.

endured unspeakable pain

Praise God the story doesn't end there! Three days later, when we celebrate Easter, Jesus rose from the dead, conquering death and sin and making salvation a sure hope for those who trust in Him.

The National Cathedral has many artistic and holy wonders to enjoy and this is just a taste of them. May God bless you and keep you, during this holy week and always!

  1. Many years ago, I made my first visit to the National Cathedral during Lent. A choir was practicing for Easter, and in the side galleries there was an exhibition of illuminated versions of John 3:16, based on the book by renowned computer professor Don Knuth.( I've never forgotten that visit

    1. What a wonderful memory. Thank you for sharing, Barry. May God bless you and your lovely family!
