No, this cathedral cannot compare to Notre Dame, Chartres, Rheims.
It was designed for the new century, as was the new one in Los Angeles.
When we walked inside the first time, the gigantic image of Christ took our breath away. You should arrive at 1 PM for the free guided tour. All of our out of town guests come away impressed; some ask to return. Wife and I plan to be interred in the crypt below . Hopefully, not soon !
