Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is in Dublin and it has all sorts of interesting stuff in it like paper leaves, bells and a weird ancient door. The black bell was given by the French as a gift for letting the French use the Cathedral.
The paper leaves look pretty but there is a deeper meaning within: every single one of the 3600 leaves hanging from the ceiling have a message for the people who died during World War One. There are also thousands of leaves attached to a tree in the Cathedral. They are written in all different languages because of the fact that all manner of citizens come to say bye to their loved ones.
The door of reconciliation has a story behind it. two families were at war. They fought until one of the families ran into the Church, into a room and closed the door. they wouldn’t open the door. So one member of the other family ordered for a hole to be cut in the door and when it was done he stuck his rm in and said “You can chose saw my arm off or shake it to end this war.” The war ended.
The stained glass in the church was put there by the vikings who build the Church could not read or write so the stained art tells a story.
There is a choir room where students from a nearby school come to sing prayers twice a day at 9am and 5:30pm.
