Day Three

By Fr. Paul Mankowski, S.J. (articles ) | May 01, 2003

From Thomas Day, Where Have You Gone, Michelangelo? (Crossroad, 1993):

A surprising new trend: the glorification of the priest's throne. At the very center (the heart?) of so many newer or renovated liturgical environments -- especially those stark, science-fiction architectural spaces -- is the Royal Seat, sometimes the most formidable artist "statement" in the whole church. (In a few cases that I have seen, one can almost imagine Ming the Merciless slouching on his throne and commanding, "Bring Flash Gordon to me!")

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
