Besides the beautiful churches and Cathedral, all the people who comprised the "Churches" are equally as beautiful!
St. Joseph Catholic Church, Macon Where I am now since 2004!
Church of the Most Holy Trinity, Augusta, 1991-2004. It is the oldest of the three, cornerstone laid in April of 1857 and the Church completed and consecrated in April of 1863 in the middle of the Civil War AKA The War Between the States, or as some prefer, "The War of Northern Aggression." It is the oldest Catholic Church building in Georgia. However the parish has been on the same property since 1810, making this year their bicentennial anniversary. Congratulations MHT! I still love you!
Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Savannah, 1985-1991
Perhaps the good Priests get the good parishes...and should not your obvious love and reverence for the Holy Church and its worship be confirmed by placing you in Churches where your love of the Liturgy and passion for the Church may be reflected in the best she has to offer? How much more beautiful is St. Joseph's, or any Church, when the Pastor highlights the physical beauty of the edifice with beautiful renderings of her worship and traditions.
It would almost be a mockery to place a Priest such as yourself in some dinky Church-in-the-round out in Bugeye, Ga. or Whoshotya, Mississippi. (God forgive me for this last statement. I could not help it. It was an accident.)
On another note, dear Father, may I issue you a caution regarding Pride...perhaps you would like to see Fr. Justin about it...
The western part of the diocese DESPERATELY needs you! That is my prayer.
