Sorka,

There are vignettes of the LA Cathedral I like. Yet, in my opinion, as a whole, it is lacking.
Some modern pieces of art stand alone and look good. I like the crypt. The wood finishes in the "sanctuary" are exquisite.With other details, I scratch my head and say, "What were they thinking?"

Stephen,

I thought of you when I posted the title.

If you look at all the pics on Holy Whapping, you'll notice the new free-standing altar also in place ... and "devotional rails" in front of the side altars ... concessions to modernism, I believe.
