The Great Continental Divide in the Western States in America defines water running east or west. Not just a geologic formation in its younger age 100 million years ago, this awesome and continent-defining set of snow-capped mountains offers the barrier of imagination through which migrating Americans traveled to come to what are now States like California (38 million residents).
Like a book of facts, the majestic formations that characterized this area of the world are spiced even by its denizens, its citizens, its friends as a part of the Pacific Rim.
These words, seemingly encyclopedic in their arrangement and tone, turn the man-made, the humble and the unusual in the Wild West (where in a City named Oakland - situated on San Francisco Bay and sharing with its more romantic and celebrated sister San Francisco), toward the recognition that the construction of a modern Roman Catholic Cathedral captures the sensibilities of its diverse worshipers - worshipers who have built, with skill, style and advanced techniques, a monument to God for its 600,000 Diocesan members' use. A holy place, a Benedictine Monk told this writer, is a place of worship and a House of God. This Cathedral of Christ the Light as it is called was a work of devotion and love.
