The season of Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday, commemorates the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus – a special time of prayer, penance and sacrifice. In this Catholic liturgical season, most people spend time in churches where they whisper their prayers and shout their faith while others spend time their holy week vacation to visit some remarkably holy places. Since holy week is a moment of renewal and grace, not for vacation, people can visit churches in other places to meet both ends for Holy Week observance.
There are literally lots of churches with magnificent architecture designs all over the world. Some look like castles and others look like simple yet erected for many centuries. Visiting these churches is a great way to spend Visita Iglesia (Seven Churches Visitation) – a pious Roman Catholic Lenten tradition conducted every Maundy Thursday.
Here’s a collection of church architecture designs with trendsetter buildings for chapels, ministries, cathedrals and places for worship that enhance liturgical. While these traditional and modern churches can easily catch your attention, always make sure that faith comes first when you decided to visit one of them. After all, it’s the prayer that always counts.
