The Beautiful Cathedral in Passau

This is the St. Stephan's Cathedral, called as "Dom St. Stephan" in German located in Passau, a city in Bavaria, Germany. This is so far one of the most beautiful cathedral I visited in this country. It has a baroque architecture the seat of the Catholic Bishop of Passau.

It has the largest church organ outside of United States. It is also the largest cathedral organ in the world.

The image below was taken during my third visit to this city last summer 2010. This is such and amazing work of art! St. Stephan's Cathedral is truly stunning!

The cathedral's overall plan was made by Carlo Lurago, its interior decoration by Giovanni Battista Carlone, and its frescos by Carpoforo Tencalla.

The Cathedral in Bamberg, Germany

The Bamberg Cathedral of St. Peter and St. George (Bamberger Dom St. Peter und St. Georg) is known to be one of the famous architectural monuments in Germany. It is also the most famous landmark of the city of Bamberg, Bavaria, Germany. Emperor Henry II is the founder of the cathedral in 1004. It has a late Romanesque design with four imposing towers.

The cathedral is about 94 m long, 28 m broad, 26 m high, and the four towers are each about 81 m high. This was taken during our visit last Oct. 9, 2010.

The Golden Altar in St. Ullrich Church in Hohenfels,Germany

"Day by day and with each passing moment,
Strength I find to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment,
I've no cause for worry or for fear."
-Berg
This is the beautiful golden altar of St. St. Ullrich Church in Hohenfels, a municipality of Neumarkt in Upper Palatinate, Bavaria, Germany. I always visit this church to lit some candles and offer prayers.

Frauenkirche, Church of Our Lady in Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany

We always pass this Church every time we visit Nuremberg Castle in Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany. Sad to say, I was still not able to go inside of this church. I promise that the next time we visit here, I will for sure take a look and lit a candle inside this historical church. Here is a little information I have from Wikipedia about this church.

The Frauenkirche (in English, "Church of Our Lady") is a church in Nuremberg, Germany. It stands on the eastern side of the main market. An example of brick Gothic architecture, it was built on the initiative of Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor between 1352 and 1362. The church contains many sculptures, some of them heavily restored. Numerous works of art from the Middle Ages are kept in the church, such as the so-called Tucher Altar (c. 1440, originally the high altar of the Augustinian church of St. Vitus), and two monuments by Adam Kraft (c. 1498).

Manic Monday #14

I am late again in posting this entry..but i always believed in the saying, "Better Late Than Never"..so here I am again...I am just thankful that I am feeling better now compared to the past days. Have a great day to all!

Visit MM site and feel free to join. Have fun answering the questions! Don't forget to visit and read the entries of other participants!

Do you usually wear perfume/cologne? If so, what's your current favorite?
I always put-on perfumes or cologne everytime I go out somewhere. It depends on what the occasion is. If I only go for shopping, I usually wear Victoria's secret or Bath and Body Works body splash or cologne. When going to a party a Davidoff Woman perfume or CK one is fine for me.

What's the last book you've read that you thought was really good? If you don't have one, what looks promising on your to-be-read list?
I read last night some Bible verses and readings. I always try to read it before I go to sleep. Forgive me God if I forget it sometimes or get lazy reading it. I got some books like romantic or love stories, travel books, accounting books, etcetera but I seldom read them...my life is soooo busy!hehehe!

Fill in the blank: I wouldn't be caught dead working in our garden. I always love to do it especially when the weather is good. We had rain today and I can't still go out trying to recover from cough and colds. Thanks God that I am feeling very better now! Cheers!
