"A sensory experience of sublime beauty." - Le Nouvelliste
"A peaceful and gently stirring documentary that considers faith and architecture and human achievement in something like geologic time. Director Stefan Haupt persuades viewers to surrender to a place, to a vision, and to a scale of thinking beyond our own lives." - Village Voice
"Vividly informative... loving, comprehensive." - Film Journal International
"We, as viewers, are immersed in the ongoing creation of a work of art, one that may not be finished for decades yet." - Christianity Today
"The film accomplishes something sublime by examining what goes into the construction of such a massive, multigenerational project. It does nothing less than show the human desire to serve, to pick up where others left off, to contribute to something larger than themselves, to leave something for others to carry forward." - Extra Criticum
