Now that’s an altar! October 12, 2010

No, this is not from some European Cathedral built, like, I don’t know, way back in the 50s or something.  You  know, way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, and we humans were just little roden-……wait, I’m not sure that’s right, either.  Anyway, below is from just your average little parish in the giant metropolis of Sleepy Eye, Minnesota (pop: 3515).  You think those farmers and maybe factory workers commuting to Minneapolis had to scrimp a bit to put up an altar like that?   Surely, we’re far too modern and sophisticated to find anything so hackneyed and cliched as this to be acceptable in our very modernist Catholic churches. 

Would anyone be willing to dig perhaps a little deeper in order to help build something like that?  I would.  What a great patrimony to leave to succeeding generations.
