May the 17th, 1325.
It is done. After so many years, it is hard to believe the last stone is in its place. I grew up and grew old building my church. Someday the whiteness of the walls will turn into different shades of gray and the roof tiles will lose their boldness.
But I hope the pointed arches and the ribbed vaults will survive and serve as mementos when my time is long forgotten.
I hope someone will stand here thousand years from now and think: They were capable of greatness, after all.
That would be enough.
