An Ascension Day Reminder
The day we began our stay in Antwerp was Ascension Day in Belgium. Many venues were closed. During our first walkabout in the historic part of Antwerp we went into the beautiful Gothic Cathedral of Our Lady. This day we just got to look from the back as services were in progress. We returned our last day and had a closer look at the interior and the lovely artwork.
(More later in my third installment about our Belgium visit).
I picked up the handout (below) that was being given out with the order of service. I liked it as a lovely expression of a message of Christianity I could readily embrace. I invite you to read it.

Here is a video tour of the inside of the Cathedral. It, of course, does not do it justice as a exquisite sacred space.
If you would like to hear some of Bach played on the organ in the Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp go here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZQ--KHn21A&feature=related.
