Chartres Cathedral: Beautiful 1962 Encyclopedia Britannica documentary

HERE it is on archive.org, if you want to see it larger.

“An in-depth study of this famous cathedral. ‘What is the special character of Chartres Cathedral that we should call it the greatest of the medieval churches?’ Narrated by New York Times art critic John Canaday, Chartres becomes a visible fusion of faith, engineering and architecture. The camera pictures the cathedral in its awesome entirety, with detailed closeups, and as an enduring triumph of man’s skills.”

your cross

Jesus did not die on the cross so that we don’t have to.

He died on the  cross to show us the way.

Take up your cross and follow Him.

The cross is the way.

He paid the price so that our crosses will never be meaningless.

He died so that our suffering is all for good.

He rose so that we too will rise.

Take up your cross.

That is the way.
