Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel
Summit Country Day School--Cincinnati, OH

When I lived in Ohio, I attended Summit for a few years and this was our school’s chapel. I remember walking into it the very first time and being amazed. Though it could never compare to the likes of Saint Peter’s Basilica and other churches, I still think it's beautiful.

Beautiful church, and, now we have THREE CC's!  :)

"The Lisbon cathedral is a Latin cross building with three aisles, a transept and a main chapel surrounded by an ambulatory. The church is connected with a cloister on the Eastern side. The main façade of the cathedral looks like a fortress, with two towers flanking the entrance and crenellations over the walls. This menacing appearance, also seen in other Portuguese cathedrals of the time, is a relic from the Reconquista period, when the cathedral could be used as a base to attack the enemy during a siege."

AWESOME.

Unfortunately, the current Cardinal Patriarch has clear modernist tendencies. He hates the TLM and has practically forbidden it in the Lisbon diocese.

The next in line to succeed him is even worse.

Maybe you'll get lucky.  We had Abp. Weakland, and now we have Abp. Listecki, who is kinda trad-friendly.

I don't think so.

Our current episcopate is just too bad to be true. Perhaps the younger ones will be better, who knows?
