You know the saying - if you want to know about Catholicism, ask a Calvinist.

The executive vice president of the company I work at is in this picture! I’m sure she has a seat close to the front. I do know some other people who received invitations to the event. Not me, I’ll watch it on the web at work.

Well, yeah, that should be on there.

And it looks like all the bells' mottos are exactly the same, when they all should be different.

But at least they HAVE one.

Have you read The Nine Tailors?

The bell mottos figure largely in that mystery.

“Have you read The Nine Tailors?”

No, I haven’t. Who’s the author?

Excuse my ignorance, but this is something I’ve never known for certain before and should: Is St. Anthony of Padua the same St. Anthony we pray to when we pray, “St. Anthony, St. Anthony, please come around, something is lost and cannot be found”?

Sure is!

Or, "Tony, Tony, look around! Something's lost and must be found!"

And when it's found, you have to give something to the poor box right away. That's "St. Anthony's Bread."

He also is the one who preached to the fishes, he was known as "The Hammer of the Heretics" and "The Living Ark of the Covenant" because of his eloquence.

He was responsible for the miracle of the horse (or the mule) and the Eucharist (hence he is carrying a monstrance in the statue).

He is often depicted with the Christ Child in his arms, because another friar saw him so in a vision.

And if he weren't a saint, he would have a full time job just looking after me and the stuff I lose . . . .

Why is it a co-Cathedral?

It has been all over the local news for days.

Can we not afford own own cathedral, we have to go in with someone?

Or is it a Coca-Thedral, with MS13 tags and all?

Dorothy Sayers is the author. It's very good, IMO!

I don’t know what a co-cathedral is.

Mis-reported.

It's a Coca-Thedral.

Everyone gets all blasted up and grooves to Steve Vai.

It's a mystery novel by Dorothy Sayers. Lord Peter Wimsey is the hero. It's set in and around an ancient church in the flat and marshy fen country of England (that's the area in the northeast, more or less in Lincolnshire and Norfolk, surrounding the Wash, an inlet of the North Sea).

The murderer is rather surprising.

Many people think it's Sayers's best book, and I tend to agree. It bears re-reading, which isn't true for many mystery novels.

Gosh, that echo is almost as bad as the hang time in our nave!!!!!

(the good news is that a long hang time in a church makes it VERY easy to play handbells. Any boo-boos are mercifully covered up!)

Very sorry to disagree with you but Sayers best book(s) are her translation of Dante's Divine Comedy.

I reread Purgatory at least once a year.

I’m assuming it’s “invite only”, so I won’t be there. :( But I’ve been watching the building of it over the last couple years. It’s beautiful. The sad thing is that it won’t have the incredible windows that are in the old Sacred Heart co-Cathedral that’s still located right next to it. I wish I knew how to post pictures—I took pictures of all the windows and the Stations of the Cross in Sacred Heart on Good Friday. Breath-taking! I’d taken them for granted until recently.

I wasn't thinking of translations, or of her plays, just of her mystery stories.

Sorry for the lack of clarity.
