Christmas at the cathedral

hope that during these Fall months you will be able to make a pilgrimage to the Cathedral

And do what? stare at the bare concrete walls and the bare "chapels" that are nothing but bare niches with perhaps a statue facing a hallway? Venerate St. Vibiana's relics encased in a concrete tomb in the basement for all NOT to see? See the faded and irreversably damaged image of Our Lady out behind the Cathedral where there was no room for her in "Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral"?

I can go down to my local church and venerate our Lord in the tabernacle, can I do that there or is He kept locked up in a room in a tabernacle that looks, at best, like something out of an Alien movie.

So what is so special about the cathedral that I would want to visit it, other than perhaps to see the ugliest cathedral ever built and marvel at the cost of such uglyness.

At Mass after Christmas in a local L.A. church, Father asked us to see the true meaning and put aside the trappings of Christmas. This is a church that still has the tabernacle in the middle of the santuary, only now a screen is between the tabernacle and the altar. This screen also partically obscures a beautiful mosaic of the crucifix.
Now at Christmas time a decorated tree is now in the middle where the tabernacle used to be seen. Is this not a trapping of Christmas?
