The phenomenon of spokesman
In the Cathedral the so-called phenomenon occurs. In fact everyone in the sanctuary can hear what you are saying, even in a low voice by a person positioned at the entrance of the Church, at a distance of no less than 85 metres. The phenomenon is even more curious when you consider that it is impossible to repeat it in the opposite direction.
