Southwark Cathedral

I rather like Southwark… little streets and interesting corners.

I popped into the once-Catholic Cathedral for a visit.

    It must be said, that when it was Catholic, that it wasn’t a cathedral… (it only became such in 1905, I think). A glorious place, none the less.

  2. I’m praying that it will be Catholic again some day!

    Stripping of the altars, indeed. One day, one day…

    Looks like a nice combination of French Gothic (the nave) and English Gothic (the Eastern end).

    I never got to see Southwark Cathedral…the only place I went to on that side of the River Thames was the ‘restored’ Globe Theatre. I bought a two-tape set of “Romeo and Juliet” in the shop there. And I think I bought a cardboard model of the Globe to give to my [then] TO Discalced Carmelite spiritual director. He asked me to get it for some youngsters he knew.
