"I Have a Feeling I've Eaten Here Before"

The "Why Catholics Give" has sparked a lively debate...
 
From Commentor Roseberry:
 
In my own town I have seen more than one altar (complete with carvings of host and chalice) serving as the cash desk at commercial establishments. At a downtown fish restaurant, the stained glass windows from our former seminary have been installed, and the old wooden communion rail separated the buffet area from the tables. This prompted a local journalist to say, as he stepped to the buffet, "I have a feeling I've eaten here before."

  1. God Bless You!

    The Holy Church is Our Lord's Mystical Body - it also undergoes the Public Life of widespread teaching, conversions, Miracles - and then also undergoes false accusations, being "sold out" by Judases, and undergoing humiliations, whippings, beatings, the difficult walk of Calvary and the Crucifixion and Death at Golgotha. And Then....Resurrection, and the Glorious Springtime of the Church which is coming....the seedlings are already visible in our midst.

  2. Reminds me of the Church Brewery, formerly the Church of St. John the Baptist, in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh......
