I read Jeanetta’s post on the reckovation of the Sacred Heart Cathedral with interest. I’m amazed at how a diocese that claims a financial crisis always manages to find enough money to trash the cathedral. Another prime example is Los Angeles. They are shutting down offices left and right due to lack of funds, but somehow they managed to build their big orange bunker.

Hmmm . . . maybe lack of funds drives a diocese to trash the cathedral. Memphis is in great financial shape, and we completed an 18-month restoration of our Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in December of 2001. The restoration was just that, a restoration. The artwork was all preserved, and cleaned. The floor that creaked was replaced with a wood floor. The ceiling tiles that sometimes fell out were removed and replaced with a beautiful painted ceiling. The only thing I don’t like are the altar and ambo. They look a little cheap to me.
