SECOND LIFE CHURCH BASILICA CARDINALE

SECOND LIFE CHURCH BASILICA CARDINALE
Church search

The kindness and love that I experience in Second Life far out weighs the negative drama that sometimes occurs between avies. We are people behind our artfully designed avatars. And with this community, sometimes, people have conflicts that can be overwhelming.

I don’t like to feel rage for anyone or any circumstance, so I search for beautiful places to meditate and to focus once again on the positive energy in this place.

Sometimes, I find it in music and other times I find it in a singular vision or an artist. This past week, I needed to find spiritual nourishment and Second Life did not disappoint me.

I arrived at LA 2019 City with a haphazard LM that didn’t arrive at the destination of the club. Several of us were left standing wondering what had gone wrong. I saw Billynom8 and he manged to fly up to the 2,351 meter mark. He so graciously tp’ed me to the party. That was my first contact with pure kindness. Thank you Billy!

DJ Voyager Xue was pounding the hardcore. Deep inside me, I let the music just take over to numb the negative away. I must come back to this place, the club was very cool.

Xavier donned his enormous white wings and enveloped me in his angelic protection. We had to go to Organica. One of the most spiritual musical places full of loving people in SL. DJ Qee was there and we just became lost in the beautiful sounds of psy and goa.

Montana sent us a tp to hear Joaquin Gustav, a live musician who plays flamenco guitar. Next to the ocean, Sasi’s club presents a beautiful and casual setting for Joaquin’s music. Unpretentious, his flamenco music captures your spirit and brings you to exotic places far away. We danced in each others arms on his musical notes.

But, my soul and spirit needed more. Both Xavier and I come from Catholic backgrounds. I asked him if he would go to church with me. So off we went in search of beautiful churches. I especially love stain glass windows and I am enchanted by religious art.

We found Walsingham Church with its simple interiors, St Paul and its large stained glass windows, the sweet gilt display of the blessed child at St George and the wonderous Basilica Cardinale. Basilica was stunning with stain glass, ornate alter and prayer pews for the patrons. I loved it here and we stayed for about an hour.

I felt refreshed. And I wanted to see art. Cherry had sent a tp to Galerie Francane, so I arrived ready. Colorful psy art and photographs lined the walls, but I was enchanted with the waterfall and river sculpture. Very spiritual with a reverence for nature and water. I loved it.

Evening came and Xavier and I headed for the special Sunday evening ballroom dancing at Phantom Rose Opera House. We danced among patrons enjoying several operatic selections. The music was divine. And we ended up almost being the last ones to leave.

Next stop in our ballroom attire was Bella Vida Velvet Jazz Lounge. I love this place for the world music it always plays. DJ Jen Noel plays here frequently as well as DJ Angelsmoon. Angelsmoon was spinning tonight with his special mixes of Moroccan, Indian and electronica fusion. I was truly in heaven at this point with his world music. I simply love his sound.

We ended out evening at Garden of Dreams locked in an embrace by the river. This is a very spiritual place with a reverence for all things natural. A glorious river flows through the sim with each area set aside for meditation and reflection. We have been here several times just to renew ourselves and our commitment to each other.

Second Life is truely a blessed place full of life’s hardships and rewards. I am reminded that this small world is definitely a reflection of the larger one we live in… and I appreciate the kindness and beauty here very much.

La primera catedral fue construida en 1541 en lo que hoy es el templo de Santa María de Gracia. Esta primitiva iglesia estaba construida con adobe y techos de paja. Hasta el día 30 de mayo de 1574 todo había transcurrido con normalidad, sin embargo, mientras se celebraba una misa, unos vecinos lanzaron unos disparos al aire en el corral contiguo, algunos cayeron en la iglesia y esta se incendió. La iglesia quedó semidestruída. Por cédula real se obtuvo el dinero para la nueva catedral. La obra avanzó muy despacio, pues escasearon los fondos, mas para febrero de 1618 el maestro arquitecto Martín Casillas había llevado los trabajos a su término. Por fin en abril del mismo año se trasladó el Santísimo Sacramento, de la antigua iglesia a la nueva. En el año de 1818,un fuerte terremoto sacudió a la ciudad, y cuando este terminó había ocurrido una nueva tragedia: las torres y la cúpula se habían derrumbado. Fueron sustituidas por unas nuevas, mismas que también se derrumbaron por un posterior terremoto en el año de 1849. Las nuevas torres fueron construidas por el Ing, Arq. Manuel Gómez Ibarra, costando 33,521 pesos, se tardaron tres años en ser construidas y fueron terminadas en 1854. El Papa Pío XII la elevó al rango de basílica menor, dedicándola a la Asunción de María Santísima.
Actualmente de la iglesia catedral continúa en peligro: ha sido dañada por los sismos de 1932, 1957, 1979, 1985, 1995 y 2003. Entre las amenazas que sufre se encuentran: la ligera inclinación de la torre norte, su ligero hundimiento y el daño estructural que ha sufrido la cúpula, entre otras.

La catedral ocupa un área de 77.8 x 72.75 metros. Contiene altares dedicados a Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, la Virgen de Zapopan (patrona de Guadalajara), Santo Domingo de Guzmán, San Nicolás de Bari, Santo Tomás de Aquino, San Cristóbal, San Juan de Dios.
Hay 52 asientos de madera tallada además de la silla cardenalicia. La mesa de consagración es de mármol y plata. Los vitrales de colores son importados de Francia.
También se encuentran imágenes de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, Del Cristo de las Aguas, entre otras. Asimismo, la catedral alberga reliquias de la mártir romana Santa Inocencia.
Tres cardenales están sepultados en la catedral, así como varios obispos de la diócesis e incluso el corazón de un presidente de la república mexicana.

The first cathedral was built in 1541 in what is now the church of Santa María de Gracia. The original church was built with adobe and thatched roofs. Until May 30, 1574 everything had gone smoothly, however, while celebrating Mass, neighbors threw a few shots in the air in the yard next door, some fell in the church and it caught fire. The church was partially destroyed. By royal decree gave the money to the new cathedral. The work proceeded very slowly, for scarce funds, but by February 1618 the master architect Martin Casillas had brought the work to completion. Finally in April of that year he moved the Blessed Sacrament, of the old church to the new. In 1818, a strong earthquake shook the city, and when this had happened ended another tragedy: the towers and the dome had collapsed. Were replaced by new ones, same as also collapsed from a subsequent earthquake in 1849. The new towers were built by the engineer, architect Manuel Gomez Ibarra, costing 33.521 pesos, it took three years to be built and was completed in 1854. Pope Pius XII elevated to the rank of minor basilica, dedicating it to the Assumption of Mary.
Today the cathedral remains in danger has been damaged by the earthquakes of 1932, 1957, 1979, 1985, 1995 and 2003. Among the threats to include: the slight inclination of the north tower, his slight subsidence and structural damage suffered by the dome, among others.

The cathedral occupies an area of ​​77.8 x 72.75 meters. Contains altars dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Sorrows, the Virgin of Zapopan (patron saint of Guadalajara), Santo Domingo, San Nicolás de Bari, St. Thomas, St. Kitts, St. Juan de Dios.
There are 52 seats carved wooden chair in addition to the Cardinal. The consecration table is marble and silver. The stained glass windows imported from France.
There are also images of Our Lady of Sorrows, the Christ of the Waters, among others. Also, the cathedral houses relics of the Roman martyr St. Innocent.
Three cardinals are buried in the cathedral, and several bishops of the diocese and even the heart of a president of the Mexican Republic.

Odzun 7th C. Armenian Basilica, Odzun village, Lori Province, Armenia
Church names
Image by james_gordon_losangeles
Odzun Church is an Armenian basilica constructed around the 5th-7th century in the Odzun village of the Lori Province of Armenia.

History
The first church appeared here in the 6th century. In the 8th century it was reconstructed by Hovhannes III Odznetsi who served as the catholikos between 717 and 728 and was, as his name suggests, from Odzun. This is the time the church got its current form of a pink felsite basilica with three naves, the two side naves being narrow. At the northern (not preserved anymore) and southern side there are unusual arcaded cloisters and the west cloister has a blind wall with an arched entrance in the middle. The roof is barrel vaulted. Four columns support the rib vaulted tambour and there are two more columns at the western part of the church. At the eastern façade above the central window one can observe a carving of Christ with the gospel of St. John and two angels below. At the southern façade, at each side of the central window there are two angels and traces of another figure, probably Christ. Much later, in the 19th century two small belltowers were added.

There are numerous gravestones of the clergy around the church and a funerary monument. Its stepped platform supports two carved stelae between double arches. The east and west sides of the monument are carved with scenes from the Bible and introduction of Christianity in Armenia. Its north and south side are carved with geometrical motifs and floral shapes. It is suggested that this monument commemorates Hovhannes Odznetsi, but its style suggests that it was probably erected earlier, in the 6th century.

This is one of only two such funerary monuments in Armenia. The one located in Odzun was given as a gift to Armenia from an Indian King around the 8th century. The other one is situated in Aghudi in southern Armenian province of Syunik.
