That is fantastic. I love the inlay.
What will happen to all the sacred art in the Churches that are closing down?
I've been thinking about that, too, but didn't want to mention it before.
That's an excellent question, Andrew. I wish I knew.
In your own words, it never hurts to ask. Maybe something could go to Annunciation parish.
If no one wants any of it, I have lots of space in my house.... perhaps you can convey mind kind offer to the Bishop, Father? =)
I'll keep you in mind, Andrew, for whatever I don't want ;)
Ahhhhh!I HOPE and PRAY you diocese has a home for its history!!! Cleveland learned its lesson a long time ago. After windows ended up in bars, pews in restaurants and confessionals became phonebooths, we built a warehouse and stored our things so that when someone renovates they may reuse some of our history.PLEASE make sure that stuff has a home. - If not even for yourself, save someone from going into a bar and seeing even this beautiful piece being used to set beers on or something!!!
I have suggested it before and will suggest it again.
Holy Yard Sale, Batman!!! I know the Philadelphia Archdiocese recently held a sale of stained glass windows that were salvaged and no other church wanted. One church I know of had a significant fire and when they rebuilt the church, they used many elements salvaged from parish churches that had been closed. I like the idea of a holy re-use-it store.
It is a great shame that more such store houses do not exist.
