Everything about the Notre Dame is stunning and left me speechless with a lump in my throat. When I walked in I was instantly humbled by the architecture and stained glass. The ceilings are tall and the live choir echoed though the building. There were people lighting candles and praying, seated in the center, and walking the perimeter. Their voices were hushed, and the music seemed to fill everything.
How amazing it was to stand in a cathedral much older than the whole United States of America! The construction of the building took almost 200 years to complete! It was an emotional and spiritual experience to get to walk through.
The whole building is a masterpiece, inside and out (to see pictures of it from the outside, click here).
