Back From Atlanta

1. Business trip, to Buckhead, north side of town. Did get a few hours to wander around, walked to the Christ the King Cathedral:

Christ the King Atlanta 2

Very lovely. Built in 1939. The 1930’s Art Deco influence on French Gothic is a bit curious in places, but not unlovely. Contrast the very traditional and beautiful stained glass:

Christ the King Atlanta 3

The Cathedral has an adoration chapel right off the sacristy – a very small room. There were 6 or 8 people there at 7:00 on a weeknight, almost packing the place. I could barely find a place to kneel on the floor and not completely block the door. But that is lovely, too! That the diocese would provide a chapel and that people would fill it is a very good thing.

2. Reading Lord of the World, a 1907 Sci Fi dystopia reportedly loved by both Benedict and Francis. 80% through, and had to go to work this morning right as it reached a terrible cliff-hanger! Will finish tonight and, time permitting, review tomorrow.

The two best things about business trips: sometimes you get to walk around in interesting places, and you get reading time.

Enough with the smarty-pants Dante quote. Just some opinionated blogger dude.
