It really is a sight to behold! Unfortunately it is copper, so I believe it will be allowed to get that green patina to it. I certainly wouldn't want to be the one in charge of keeping it all shiny like that. I would think it would have to be sealed in some fashion and probably reapplied periodically to keep it bright and beautiful. Very high maintenance, but we are all loving it being so visible throughout most of the city.

Certainly I have a 6-pack. You just can't see it through my soft sided cooler!

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Here in North Carolina we currently hold the record for the smallest Cathedral in the US. I think Sacred Heart Cathedral in downtown Raleigh only holds about 250 people. It was designated as a Holy Doors Church and our Catholic Daughters group went up there with our Chaplin, Fr. Ian for confession after walking through the doors. Very nice. Unfortunately (?) we will lose the smallest Cathedral designation as we are building a brand new gorgeous Cathedral. It was big news here when they raised the Dome. You can see it glistening from so many areas of the city. It will be wonderful when it is finally completed

Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul.
Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..
it is the key to heaven.

Great idea!

Our parish has been invited to our cathedral soon for a special celebration and to walk through the Holy Door.

This afternoon I went to visit another priest whose parish has been designated as a pilgrimage site for the Year of Mercy. He and I passed through the Holy Doors, and prayed together for the intentions of the Holy Father. The Year of Mercy is about halfway over, so if you want to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity, do it now!
