Early last Summer, 2014, I found serenity while visiting the Mary Queen of the World Cathedral strategically situated on Rene Levesque boulevard near two other famous Montreal landmarks, the Queen Elizabeth Hotel on its East and the Sun Life building on the North side.

As many know, places of worship normally provide a sanctuary, a quiet place to pray, reflect, and venerate and this cathedral qualified perfectly. The Mary Queen of the World Cathedral was built a mirror image of Saint Peter’s Cathedral and is a huge structure just like the one in Rome.

I walked in through a set of massive doors, proceeded up the main aisle, and took a vacant pew and knelt down on the provided kneeling board. I then peacefully and silently prayed to God reflecting on my life. After I had finished, I decided to explore the church and while in the process, discovered this very tranquille, serene, nook with a large statue of Saint Joseph. He was carrying the Christ child on his shoulder something any Earth father would probably do with their child.
