Stained Glass: Mare de Déu de Montserrat Church
While celebrating my daughter's First Communion I took some pictures of the stained glass work at Mare de Déu de Montserrat Church near Hospital de Sant Pau. It is a small building and not different from many others but I have always liked religious art. My father used to take me to churches when I was a child not to pray, but to admire the beauty of the place. So I guess cathedrals, altars, organs or stained glass remind me of both my childhood and my father.
