The House of God and Door of Heaven

Main Doors (central)

The pointed arch over the door, so typical of Gothic architecture, draws the eye upwards emphasizing the loftiness and grandeur of the structure and, by extension, of God into whose very house we are privileged to enter.

Non est hic aliud nisi domus Dei et porta caeli.
                   - Gen.28.17
