You’ve got Levada, Mahony, Law…

Fame or Shame?

Retired Cardinal Roger Mahony – builds the Cathedral Called “Rog Mahal”

Rog Mahal – aka The LA Cathedral was pricey – from Wikipedia:

The prices for some cathedral furnishings have also caused consternation. $5 million was budgeted for the altar,

  • the main bronze doors cost $3 million, 
  • $2 million was budgeted for the wooden ambo (lectern)
  • and $1 million for the tabernacle. $1 million was budgeted for the cathedra (bishop’s chair),
  • $250,000 for the presider’s chair,
  • $250,000 for each deacon’s chair,
  • and $150,000 for each visiting bishops’ chair,
  • while pews cost an average of $50,000 each.

The cantor’s stand cost $100,000 while each bronze chandelier/speaker cost $150,000.[6] The great costs incurred in its construction and Mahony’s long efforts to get it built led critics to dub it the “Taj Mahony”[11] and the “Rog Mahal”.[12]

Cardinal Mahony: He Blogs, he is on Facebook and he will not  talk about shuffling the inappropriate priests from one parish to another for decades.

See Cardinal Mahony in the disturbing and

insightful Award Winning Documentary:

Deliver Us from Evil

Mahony may not go down in Catholic history

as a real estate magnate – but as a man who looked the other way – time and time again –

as priests, under his watch, repeatedly abused children. He shuffled  pedophiles from parish to parish…is infamous for it.

” German Bishop Spends Millions gets Expelled by Pope”

“Pope Francis has suspended indefinitely  German Roman Catholic Bisop Van Elst – known as the “luxury bishop” from his diocese for spending $43 million to decorate his residence- aka The Palace.

“The Holy See deems it appropriate to authorise a period of leave from the diocese for Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst,” the Vatican said in a statement on Wednesday.”

Hey, guys….What happened to that vow of poverty?

One thought on “Famed expensive Los Angeles Cathedral…how much, Cardinal Mahony?

  1. …Apparently, Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, 53, the bishop of Limburg, Germany, for almost six years, is not on the same page as his new boss.

    Roman Catholic bishops rarely serve as Page 1 tabloid fodder or top the national television ratings. But the prelate of Limburg earned this dubious distinction in 24 hours last week as outrage swelled after the news media reported the cost of the renovation of his residence, about $42 million, and a state prosecutor in Hamburg charged him with lying in a legal case.

    The bishop ordered up a palatial living room, and his apartment alone cost $3.9 million, according to Jochen Riebel, the spokesman for the body administering church property in Limburg. Mr. Riebel said the bishop lied last summer when confronted over the cost, estimating the renovation at just $13.5 million.

    Citing Mr. Riebel, the German news agency DPA itemized the work: $474,000 for carpentry and cupboards, $610,000 for art, $135,000 for windows for a private chapel, $34,000 for a conference table, $20,000 for a bathtub….
