I was in cathedrals in Italy and France with the unbelievably high ceilings and stained glass windows as tall as buildings. But it was The Chapel of The Holy Cross in Sedona that touched me the most emotionally. You can see Cathedral Rock from the chapel but the view through those huge windows in the front of the chapel out onto the Sedona vista was overwhelmingly beautiful. I felt so close to holiness in all of Sedona but particularly on the day I was inside the chapel, sitting on a stone pew, listening for bells that played in the background. "Touched by grace" comes to mind for that experience.
