It started at 9:00 a.m. and was complete at 2:00 p.m. CST. Words fail. We'll have a gallery of pictures (professionally photographed) up in a couple of days. These pix are just a few amateur snaps:
- ...shows Bishop Finn anointing of one of the twelve crosses on the walls of the church. His Excellency is doing this by climbing a ladder at each of the crosses.
- ...shows the procession of relics being brought into the church to be placed in the three altars. The relics are of: St. Dominic, St. Justina, St. Florence, St. John Bosco, and St. Bernadette Soubirous.
- The third picture shows Bishop Finn sprinkling the entire interior of the church.
It was a magnificent day! The culmination of three years of renovation...and twenty years of Latin Mass in Kansas City and prayer for our own parish. It's done! Alleluia!
