Another open public manifestation of Real Presence

from the Wisconsin State Journal's coverage of the destruction of St. Raphael Cathedral:

....He [Bishop Robert Morlino] also was moved by Madison firefighters' rescue of the cathedral's ceboriums holding the Holy Sacrament, wafers already consecrated as Jesus Christ's body.

"The firefighters had to cut their way through," Morlino said. "They went in there and brought it out with great reverence. . . . In a symbolic way, that illustrates the caring of Madison."


And here's the photo of the firefighters returning the ciboria to the Cathedral rector:

Attention, panicked brides: Get over it! Rather than pay for goofy gifts and trinkets, put the money either to the restoration of the cathedral or to charity programs -- and put greater emphasis on your marriage than on your wedding anyway.

I should have mentioned this before the brides comment:

This is a very heartwarming picture.

Reverent people inspire me to be twice as reverent as I seek to be each day. Reverent people and their love for Jesus ensure that priests do not take for granted their vocations and their charisms.

Hi,

Catholic bloggers (or anyone)who want to Fast for Terri, or go on Hunger Strike, are invited sign up at the St. Blog's Parish Hall. It will be sent to the Schiavos as a spiritual bouquet.

God have mercy.

In Christ, Mary
