Another winning moment in my list was hearing mass at the grand St. Patrick’s Cathedral. To be honest I wasn’t so aware that NYC had such a gem of a cathedral right in its heart! I always pictured New York to be all about the new, the fast, the flashy, and the bustling, more contemporary than classical. So when we heard Sunday Mass at the cathedral, my heart simply melted. It was one of our last few days in the city, and I was so ready to be captivated by old world charm after consecutive days of living in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. Sunday mass is a must wherever we may be, and NYC was no exception! I actually look forward to hearing mass abroad because I get to really immerse myself in the Christian culture of whichever country I’m visiting. It makes the world feel even smaller than it already is.
