The Windows of Sagrada Familia

When I did my Cathedrals of the World segment on the Sagrada Familia, I harshly criticised the stained-glass windows. I must say, I take them back. At the time of writing, I did not know what the design plan of the Cathedral that Gaudì had planned, was. It apparently is supposed to reflect nature, where nothing is exactly symmetrical. The colours in the windows are supposed to represent the colours found in nature. I didn't know that! I apologise, to anyone's feelings I may have hurt! God Bless! Though, this is has not made me sympathetic to the monstrosities found in a lot of the new stained-glass windows found in most modern-churches which were built "in the Spirit of Vatican II"
