Images of the Pope’s Old Cathedral
Katerina and I took these pictures of the Frauenkirche, which is the cathedral church of the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising, when we were in Germany last May. You’ll notice the wonderful plaque commemorating Pope Benedict XVI’s tenure as archbishop. The interior of the church is a bit austere, but that is easily explained by the bombing it took during World War II and its subsequent restoration.
One thing that made quite an impression on us was Mass attendance in Germany–German Catholics go to church! We attended several weekday and Sunday Masses in four different German cities, each time a different church, and the pews were packed.
