When cathedrals fly ...
FLYING HOUSE, the Victor Lams' song [download it HERE] about the Holy House of Loreto gave me an inspiration.
I propose that we all pray really, really hard and beg the angels to transport Mahony's Cathedral out of L.A.
It might take some convincing, however, since this moving job is a lot more complicated. To be sure, the Santa Casa di Loreto weighs almost nothing in comparison to the massive Holly(wood) House of Zuchetto.
According to my calculations, the building cost approximately $1.33 per pound (that's $200 million divided by 150 million pounds, which is what the Archdiocese says the building weighs). Believe it or not, this is a lot cheaper than beef jerkey.
This really should not be too difficult a job for angels since it's no big deal for them to move planets around and such.
What do you say we pray?
And any thoughts on where they should drop it?
Would it be too much to ask them to take the Cardinal with them?
It looks like he's even stretching his wings in this pic:
