Sometimes I see something that really makes my blood boil. This is the sanctuary floor at St. Aloysius. That's some of the best tile work in the diocese.
Unfortunately, that's not just carpet. When, in the 70's, the sanctuary was changed, doubtless by people who blamed Vatican II for their own destructiveness, a concrete platform was poured directly over the tile. Vatican II never suggested anything quite like that.
In the 80's common sense returned, along with the crucifix, which was brought back from exile in the choir loft. At that time, an attempt was made to uncover the tile. They found out that removing a concrete platform stuck like glue to a work of art is close to impossible.
By the way, the same morons hacked out the tile from the aisles to install carpet.
I remember the 70's well. That's a lot easier than understanding the 70's, much less condoning the atrocities committed back then.
