    I was last in Notre Dame on a sunny summer morning in 2013, and I remember feeling as though the inside of the cathedral was alive with color from the stained glass reflected on the walls and columns. There was a couple taking wedding pictures, and I remember her white dress spangled with all the colors as she turned and laughed.

    Partly because of the hight of the ceiling–and nothing can quite prepare you for the vastness of the space–it had lively acoustics, and the ordinary noises of people going about the daily work of the church felt dynamic.

    The whole space felt alive. I cried all afternoon yesterday.
