Two Steeples Three Crosses
Photograph - Photography, Photograph
A steeple, in architecture, is a tall tower on a building, topped by a spire and often incorporating a belfry and other components. Steeples are very common on Christian churches and cathedrals and the use of the term generally connotes a religious structure. They may be stand-alone structures, or incorporated into the entrance or center of the building. - copied from Wikipedia
These steeples are part of the architectural structure of Fort Wayne, Indiana's Cathedral located on S. Clinton Street.
Three crosses are symbolic of suffering and death by crucifixion. In the Christian faith the three crosses are symbolic of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ between two thieves. The middle cross is where the Son of God gave his life a ransom for sinners and the two thieves illustrate how that sacrifice is applied by faith. Both thieves confessed to their guilt. While both at first only wanted Jesus to get them down "if" He was the Son of God, one repented of his sin and only asked that Jesus remember him when He entered into His kingdom. That was both an admission of his own personal sin and faith in Christ as the redeemer. Jesus responded by telling him, he would be with Him that day in Paradise.
