The National Cathedral, Washington, D.C. In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt laid the cornerstone to this 14th century English gothic Cathedral, completed in 1991. Its Preamble reads: “First. It shall be a House of Prayer for all people, forever free and open welcoming all who enter its doors to hear the glad tidings of the Kingdom of Heaven, and to worship God in Spirit and in Truth. It shall stand in the capital of our country as a witness for Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever, and for the faith once for all delivered to the saints; and for the ministration of Christ’s Holy Word and sacraments…” Photograph: John W.
