A tribute to the treasure trove of ecclesiastical art and architecture in the Diocese of Toledo.
My kind of place.
OMG ... a place after my own heart, just like Hemingway's but with crosses and statues ... where is this now?
I'm sorry, I just read it closer ... the country church with the dominating spire? They have a cat colony?? Certainly would keep the mice out of the place!
yeah, they have quite a few cats. Some live under the church, others around the grounds. They are all very friendly.
The Holy Father loves cats, and Leo XIII often had a kitten riding in the pocket of his cassock.
Kyle, Father Speier has a cat in the rectory. Her name is George. haha
That happens more often than you might think. When they're kittens, it's not easy to tell the difference, unless you know the secret trick.

HERE'S the link for that. It's good.Actually, that about not being able to take his cats to the Vatican isn't certain. It started in the press, but I've heard reliable sources say it isn't true.
Jeffrey, thanks for the factoid about Leo XIII.
Its name was Micetto.
