The Most Beautiful Churches

In response to the feature I posted about on the most ugly churches, Michael Sean Winters asked for nominations for the most beautiful churches.  No slide show and just a few links, but go here for some nominations in different categories:  The Most Beautiful Churches | National Catholic Reporter.

These are mostly Catholic churches, except for the Air Force Academy Chapel, but I think there are more beautiful churches than just these, ranging from very traditional to very modern styles.  What are your nominations?  Pictures or links to pictures would be helpful.  And don’t just consider famous churches from noted architects.  Feel free to point to what’s beautiful in your own church.

Here is one of the church buildings cited, the Cathedral-Basilica of the Assumption in Covington, Kentucky.  It draws on the old gothic style, but instead of the darkness that characterizes medieval churches, it is filled with light.
