A tribute to the treasure trove of ecclesiastical art and architecture in the Diocese of Toledo.
I was there yesterday morning. Not a happy occasion or photo-taking occasion - a funeral. Nonetheless, the building is alot more impressive on the inside than the outside. Soaring wood-plank ceiling characteristic of modern-design 1950's churches, very commanding altar with a huge crucifix (not a resurrefix). Various nicely-maintained statues in the windows along both sides. Electronic organ, though, and extensive use of prerecorded liturgical music (can you say Little Flower?). Stations of the cross stand out as appearing quite a bit older than the rest of the place, and I speculate that they came from whatever building the parish had before this one.
