I ended up doing a day trip to Müchen last Saturday because, well, why not? Stumbled upon an absolutely gorgeous Cathedral. I assumed it was Protestant but upon discovering at least 5 altars to Mary, realized it was in fact Catholic. I wish I had a better camera because the artwork there was literally breathtaking and my phone didn't do anything justice.
I walked around a bit, appreciated the good things faith can inspire us to do, and lit some candles to Mary for my mom (she was all about praying to the Mother of God), and said a prayer for her.
The more I see of Germany the happier and sadder I get. I'm incredibly thankful the military has given me this opportunity, but also heartbroken that I can't tell my mom about my travels in the country her family came from, places she never got to see in her life.
I am determined to make the most of it for her though. ❤
