Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul
Today is the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. It is also the Patronal Feast of my Archdiocese. For the second year in a row, the Archbishop will be celebrating a special Mass at the Cathedral of St. Paul at 7:00 p.m.
I may or may not attend. I love the idea but I'm not wild about the multilinqual, multiethnic "program" planned for it. Call me a party-pooper but when I read about the plans for a Procession of the Nations, I thought; how about a Procession of the Catholic Nation? How about just Latin, rather then all this multilinqual stuff? How about getting rid of that obviously architecturally out-of-place wooden freestanding altar (ok, the last one is not on the program at all but that table drives me crazy)!
This day also gives me a fine excuse to post a Caravaggio (like I need one!).
