The Value of the Mass

The Value of the Mass
Up to our own times, it has been the constant concern of supreme pontiffs to ensure that the Church of Christ offers a worthy ritual to the Divine Majesty, 'to the praise and glory of His name,' and 'to the benefit of all His Holy Church - Pope Benedict XVI, Summorum Pontificum

Lost but not Forgotten

Somtimes I weep when I think of what we have lost.
Sold to Baptists

That is terribly, terribly, horribly sad. Where is this?

Can you tell the story of that altar? Just a pic tells so few for many of your readers.

I know that the altar is in Pennsylvania somewhere. I know that the Church is now a baptist church. I know the altar no longer exists. I want to say that the church is in Pittsburg, but I'm not 100% on that.

As for the story of the picture, it's a picture that was shown to me as I was working in the Jubilee Museum in Columbus.

Other than that, I don't know much about it.

In Missouri, west of St. Louis, was a Jesuit Seminary tat was sold to an evangelical group to use as their seminary. A friend and i went out to visit it while it was still "Jesuit Museum". the main chapel's altar had been ripped out and replaced by a keyboard and drumset.

At first I lamented what the new owners had done to the chapel. Then I remembered it was a Jesuit seminary, so it may have been that way since the 60's.
