According to one poster ... "This saint was once resting above the altar at the L.A. cathedral, St. Vibiana's. This once magnificent cathedral was sold to a private party and is now used as an event center that hosts, fashion shows, parties, and weddings. Some of these events are downright disgusting. All the while, the altar, confessionals, and many other catholic representations remain intact. The sad thing is - the old cathedral in its private secular remodel looks better than the new "real" cathedral for the archdiocese."

BRACE YOURSELVES!

For anyone who arrived on FR post 2002, check out the following FreeRepublic thread that dates from September 2002. It details the process forged by Cardinal Roger Mahony who wanted to raze the Cathedral of St. Vibiana. This is a must read!
