Reflect on your experience of worshiping at high mass in the Köln Cathedral. How is this different than your home church? What parts of the service did you like?
My church doesn’t have the preist in robes and we do not sing hymns or light incense down the aisles. My church is much more contemporary with a paster in jeans and a button down.
It is estimated that more than 20,000 people visit the cathedral each day – What were your thoughts of seeing all the “tourists” waiting to get into the church when we were leaving the service?
I thought it was very strange how the church does not have much privacy at all. Hundreds of people were flowing through the back of the church while church was in session. Surprisingly it was not that loud and I could focus on the sermon easily.
