“Driven by Faith” Justo Gallego Martinez’s One-Man Mission
Here is a story for your Sunday:
For 53 years, Justo Gallego has been building a cathedral by hand on the outskirts of Madrid almost entirely by himself. Gallego has no formal architecture or construction training, but that hasn’t stopped him from toiling on this herculean task. At 90 years old, Gallego knows that he will not be able to finish the project in his lifetime. But he keeps at it anyway, day after day, driven by his faith. (Colossal)
You can read more about the project by clicking HERE but don’t miss the short film below.

My word, this is ingredible.
What an amazing man! I hope someone will keep working on it for him when he can no longer do it. It looks very well built.
