I had the opportunity to visit Notre Dame in Paris. I was very careful not to talk and tiptoed as quietly as I could as I viewed this magnificent structure. In contrast a group of Japanese tourists came through and it was as if they were visiting Disney World.
By the way, I am very grateful to Catholics for preserving the treasures of Western Civilization, for being the inspiration for these great works, and ( at great expense to them) continuing to maintain their libraries and religious buildings.
Thank you for your comment. The time has come for Church pastors to provide sound guidance on liturgical rubrics and to set the example of reverent behavior before Our Eucharistic Lord.
