Cathedral of the Plains in Victoria Kansas

St. Fidelis Church at Victoria, Kansas, is one of the most sacred places I've ever been. I'm not Catholic, but you can feel power within these walls.

I stopped late Wednesday afternoon on my way home from teaching social networking for the rural tourism folks. Rarely do I go by Victoria without a visit to the Cathedral of the Plains. Rarely do I leave there with dry eyes.

For reasons I don't understand, being inside that church makes me very emotional. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude when I go there.

I always light a candle and say prayers. It seems right.

On this afternoon, the sunlight was streaming in like I'd never seen it before. It was a memorable visit.
