The Church of the Holy Ghost - is one of the oldest churches in Copenhagen - and situated on the pedestrian street “Strøget” - close to Amagertorv. Some of the church buildings are more than 500 years old - and once the church served as a monastery with its own hospital.

Church in Renaissance and Baroque Style
The earlier Gothic church was built in the 13th century - and the last church was built 1878-81 - on the old foundations in Renaissance style - replacing the Baroque church that was built after the destructing fires of Copenhagen in 1728.

Great pix..looks like a great historical place. I don't think these photos need any enhancing their are fine works of art on their own standing.

I'm not a religious person, but that's a very beautiful prayer. You never fail dear friend

ROFL. I'm not religious either- more spiritual. 
I think the Holy Spirit is a universal substance
that flows in everything and everyone, and its
eternal essences are our breaths of life, love,
light, power, peace, beauty and joy.

And beyond our breaths, our consciousness. " )
