Feast of the Three Wise Men Cologne Germany

Today is the Feast of the Three Wise Men, whose remains are said to be buried in the Cathedral in Cologne. Each hour a mass is held with the church bells chiming throughout the town square.

This is the biggest church in Europe, having been spared during WW2. There are bullet holes evident on the exterior facade along with some blackened walls from coal use, but still it is a beautiful and well cared for piece of history.

Today, four couples were being honored in a special service to renew their wedding vows too. During the services, the church was still open to guests who could view from a distance. Churches like this make Roman churches seem small.
