Cathedral Tour Puts the Focus on Mahony

September 02, 2002

Cardinal Roger Mahony's personal tour of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels gives new meaning to the word "grandiosity" ("Mahony Shares His Delight at a Dream Made Manifest," Aug. 28). With each of Mahony's breathless descriptions, I was taken back to Jackie Kennedy's gushy televised tour of the White House during her stint as first lady. In a city plagued by a host of human tragedies resulting from poverty, among other ills, it's comforting to know that someone like Mahony can still find a place for high camp.

The church would have been better served had the cardinal taken time for a few "mug shots" while he was documenting the building of the new cathedral in his 40 photo albums.
