    Rich, do you have any more historic images of other Rochester churches that no longer exist? I love these images!

    Oh..the pictures after the fire are almost too painful to bear. The image of the Pieta in the midst of the ruins is unbearable. I look at those pictures and it is a foretelling of what our diocese would look like spiritually and physically in years to come. It was an omen.
