Semester Abroad Church Tally

During my semester abroad, I kept a tally of all of the churches into which I went. I didn’t just go into them as sights to see. I entered them as the houses of prayer they were. Christ lives in every church, reserved in the tabernacle. I had the opportunity to visit Him in 74 different churches across Europe.

“It became obvious why Catholics had built
such beautiful cathedrals and churches throughout the world.
Not as gathering or meeting places for Christians.
But as a home for Jesus Himself in the Blessed Sacrament.
Cathedrals house Jesus. Christians merely come and visit Him.
The cathedrals and churches architecturally
prepare our souls for the beauty of the Eucharist.

-Allen R. Hunt
