    It’s like having our very own Catholic “Discovery Channel”. Thanks for all your hard work.

    Yes, your Jesus our sister? subject is intriguing. I love getting an art education from your tags. I lament the lack of more traditional liturgical beauty in our churches. Why are we so skimpy now. I went to SHC Sunday and took a real good look at the Mary and Jesus statue/sculpture and came away with the feeling that Mary is also very alone in that cathedral. Alone enough to look sort of odd all by herself. Especially compared to St. Michael’s on N. Clinton which is a visual picnic for Catholics. In some churches the most decorative embellishment is the tree with the donors names shinning brightly. Keep writing, I’m reading.

    I came across your blog while trying to research the horrors of the Diocese of Albany, which is where I lived for a time as a young child. I knew it was kind of liberal up in that Diocese, but I didn’t know the extent of it until I found a long article called AGONY IN ALBANY. I remember as a young child moving to Albany from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia (quite traditional) and noticing in Albany that altar bells were not rung during the elevation of the host and chalice, which even as an 8 year old was appalling to me. So my family thankfully moved back to PA (to the Diocese of Allentown this time, also quite traditional.) Altar bells are common here! Well anyway, my point is that I pray for you in Rochester and those in Albany and any left-wing diocese. I am very thankful to be in the Diocese I am in. I get irritated if I attend Mass around here and the bells are not rung for some reason…I don’t know how good I have it down here! I haven’t seen true liturgical abuse like what I have seen in the pics on this blog in Rochester. I know I have focused on the altar bells, I often think of that as a gauge of traditionalism, they call your attention to the miracle that is happening at that moment. Well, thank you for what you have done with this blog. I will pray that Rochester gets a good bishop.
