Let's pray that the Catholics of California will rise up in defense of this beautiful mission.
The mission, the 11th of Alta California's 21 founded by the holy Franciscan missionaries, is maintained by the state government and is not a parish.
Until now, the state government has done a good job of restoring and caring for the mission church, the outlying buildings and the mission grounds.
But, wait! What if liberal Catholics had control of the mission? They might close it and bulldoze it and call that "a positive development."
Or the liberals might "re-image" the church and wreckovate it, jackhammering the sanctuary and altar, and shunting the tabernacle out of sight, in the name of "full and active participation" and of "gathering faithfully together."
So, saints preserve us from liberal governors -- and liberal Catholics!
