Rev. Robert H. Schuller's Church to Become a Real Cathedral?

Said Bishop Tod David Brown of the Diocese of Orange in California, "While we continue to develop plans for a cathedral in Santa Ana, it is prudent to evaluate the opportunity to engage in the pending auction of this property and to mitigate the chance that it cease to function as a place of worship, if acquired by others" — Southern California diocese considers buying Crystal Cathedral.

This seems almost providential. A cathedral is, after all, defined as "[t]he principal church of a bishop's diocese, containing the episcopal throne." Rev. Schuller's presumption might be rectified.

It certainly is architecturally protestant enough to satisfy all the wants modern american catholics look for in the churches today.

It was even designed by the openly queer Philip Johnson to give it that modern ecumenical twist.

Best yet, now Catholics can join in the crystal cathedral fun of sitting in their cars during 'services'. They don't even need to get out of their cars to go to communion, especially with loads of E.M.E.s on hand to distribute communion from car to car.

About the architecture, just think how much worse it will be if they build something new.

And they can put in some road guard fencing to serve as altar rails for the Latin Mass drive-in parishioners. If they take to driving low-riders, they can even genuflect.

Possibly. There isn't much under the sun that could not be worse, albeit, it often appears that Catholics have done their best to sink themselves to the lowest level possible where the going down further is tough digging.

Nevertheless, I suppose it could be worse the crystal cathedral, although at first blush I'm not certain how.

Here's how it can be worse, far worse -- Oakland Cathedral and Los Angeles Cathedral.
