See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

St. Joseph




Cardinal Mahony recently blessed a handsome sculpture of St. Joseph and the Child Jesus, by Christopher Slatoff.  "This life-sized bronze sculpture --- the newest artistic addition at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels --- not only depicts the loving relationship between St. Joseph and Jesus, but also the challenges of fatherhood and of being a Christian, according to his creator, Christopher Slatoff." - Source

  2. So, it's already a miracle-producing statue: it's making many of Cardinal Mahony's critics approve something he has done!

  4. I thought Cdl Mahony was older...looks kinda young in that photo...and his stole looks like a scarf too.
