    As I’ve often said about organized religion, “While I find the substance appalling, I often find the trappings absolutely enthralling.”

    I’ve been inside the Washington National Cathedral. It is absolutely enthralling.

  • I find this “tour” disappointing. When reading the title of the article, I expected something more than a few pictures of light and shadow. Black and white photography is challenging and useful if done well, but these pictures are for the most part, rather so so and not a good tour. “One of the many stained glass windows…” —- which window? Depicting what? I would love to see a real photographic tour of the cathedral. Maybe you can do that next time.

    John F. Kennedy’s funeral in 1963 was at St. Matthew’s, the Catholic cathedral on Rhode Island Avenue in DC, not at the National Cathedral. Kennedy was Catholic and had a Catholic Requiem Mass celebrated by Boston’s Cardinal Richard Cushing.

    Thanks for your correction. We took out the reference to JFK.
