Author Doorly says this, among other things, about Cardinal Mahony's cathedral:
"Why build a Catholic cathedral that has as one of its central aims not to be specifically Catholic? To aim for universal appeal is a Relativist impulse borne of the belief that all religious traditions are equally valid, that there's 'nothing special' about Catholicism and nothing special about God. In Los Angeles Cathedral it seems that only Man is special."
She said that after citing passages in a brochure about the cathedral.
What do you think about her assessment?
Accompanying the interview is a nice, worthwhile list of links to material about Catholic churches and their design.
By the way, editor Olson made a comment here recently; glad he checked in, and glad you have, too.
