High Altar at the Cathedral

Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - high altar

At the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, with poinsettia decorations for Christmas.

This magnificent church shows many influences of the early 20th century Liturgical Movement, with a prominent altar, crucifix, and candles surmounted with a canopy. The artwork here is directly related to the liturgy, whereas historical and devotional imagery is farther away from the altar area.
