Pane by pane.
I saw this in the LA Times:
On the plaza of the future Christ Cathedral, 3,000 chairs and 7,000 water bottles awaited the faithful. On Saturday, before Mass welcomed families from St. Callistus Church to their new home, an organizer said into the microphone: “Those sitting in the sun will get more blessings from God.”
The service on the grounds once belonging to the Crystal Cathedral started on time at 4 p.m., as a parade of priests led by Bishop Kevin Vann let their words — English, sprinkled with Spanish, Tagalog and Vietnamese — embrace the multicultural crowd.
There was a lot more but I have two points to make.
First, multi-cultural? BAH! I think that using all those languages would have manifested disunity, just as the unfortunate Babel Incident did. If only the Catholic Church, the Roman Rite, had a common language that everyone could use. Gosh. Wouldn’t that be great?
Second, I like that the church was named St. Callistus! An ancient saint, too. How refreshing not to have something like “Living Faith Fellowship Community”
“Fluffy Lamb like Nice Jesus Pastoral Center”.
