During the Flower Festival the Cathedral welcomed many, many people who came to marvel at the stunning floral creations and displays. Human creativity combined with the natural beauty of flowers inspired and enriched the hearts and minds of visitors. Jesus encouraged people to consider the beauty of the lilies if they were worried about what to wear. In our culture obsessed with image and artificial beauty, the flower festival is a reminder that there's more to life than superficial concerns. You are always welcome at St Edmundsbury Cathedral to consider these things.
