InSPIREd Sunday - Melrose, Minnesota

In a previous post from early 2013, I posted a daytime photo of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Melrose, Minnesota. This week, it's the opposite time of day. I was traveling northwest on I-94 after landing in Minneapolis-St. Paul. From a distance, I could see the twin spires of St. Mary's illuminated against the nighttime sky. Since the church is just off the interstate highway and easy to get to, I made a quick decision to snap a few photos. I didn't get out of my car because it was still cold in Minnesota back in mid-March and you can tell by the flags for Lent it was windy, too. I love the symmetry in the facade on this church. Enjoy!
