Virtual Tour of Salt Lake's Cathedral of the Madeline

In honor of today's feast of St. Mary Magdalene, here are some images from my visit last month to the Cathedral in Salt Lake City, the only Cathedral in America named after St. Mary Magdalene.

While the walls feature a truly beautiful depiction of Our Lord and His Saints, the altar is sadly a shadow of its former self before the destruction following Vatican II. 

From the Deseret News Archives, this image from November 23, 1961, shows the Cathedral on Thanksgiving Day. Sadly, the beautiful altar arrangement and the side altars are a thing of the past. More reason for us to pray for a restoration of the True Roman Rite to return to every consecrated church in our world, our nation, and our own city.
