Basilica of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
And how odd is this, this morning's Macon Telegraph (at least in its on-line edition) has this story about a recently designated minor-basilica near Detroit! Read it by pressing here! The Telegraph must be clairvoyant or my clairvoyant telepathy is being received by them!
St. Joseph Church in Macon is certainly a more stunning gem of architecture compared to Sacred Heart and certainly has a strong liturgical and parish life to support its application to be a minor-basilica.
Press here to find out how St. Joseph Church may well become The Basilica of Saint Joseph, Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary or The Basilica of Saint Joseph for short!
Symbols St. Joseph Basilica would receive: Umbrella, Papal Coat of Arms and Tintinnabulum
Symbols of a Basilica
Traditionally the special insignia of a minor basilica have been the "conopeum" and the "tintinnabulum." The former is a large umbrella composed of alternate red and yellow silk stripes. The latter is a bell mounted on a pole. Both were used in ancient times in papal cavalcades to the stational churches.
The umbrella was used as protection against inclement weather; the bell was used to marshal the procession and to signal its approach. Customarily these insignia are displayed in the sanctuary of the church. They are also carried in processions after the processional cross, the basilica bell preceding the umbrella or "ombrellone."
