Note person standing below bell. It was cast in 1922.
Clap on [clap clap]
Clap off [clap clap]
48,000 lb clapper? Wow.. the damage that thing must have done when it fell.
When I saw the headline, I assumed it was “silenced” due to Muslim complaints. I’m glad to see it was a mechanical issue that can be resolved.
Cynical? You bet!
Let me guess......someone was offended.....sarc off/
I visited the magnificent and TRULY awesome Koln Cathedral in 1987.
Even back then it was more a museum than an active Church.
But hopefully not for long. The Catholic Church is ancient and in Her long history, She has seen many spells of empty and cold secularism before.
I’ll miss hearing that bell in the morning.
Joe Biden has agreed to stand in as Ding-A-Ling until repairs are completed.
Sorry but I just couldn’t take it anymore.
