Sacred places

As I've noted before, the devestated New Orleans/Louisiana area is a famous center of American Catholicism. Many of the churches are absolutely gorgeous. I thought maybe I'd share a few from this site:

These, for instance, are from St. Anthony of Padua Church, on Canal Street in New Orleans:

The sanctuary

The altar

Just beautiful!
