Holy Cross Cathedral

 This is the Holy Cross Cathedral, the mother church of Catholicism in Nigeria. It is where the Cardinal Anthony Okogie, Archbishop of Nigeria, presides.

Went in during the weekend and was awestruck. Sitting in the pews, I looked up and beheld such splendour that I was moved to confession. The stained windows painted with the vision of the saints, the Ascension and many other Christian art was truly piercing. However, not being Catholic, all I could ask Father Jacob whom I met was permission to take some photos that he granted.

Have a wonderful Easter Monday.
