Thanks for the ping! I lived in Northern CA (SF and Santa Rosa) for years but never saw St. Vibiana's on my few trips to LA. It's truly beautiful.
Actually, I find it hard to imagine anybody who would be ideologue enough to want to destroy it simply to advance his own agenda. But Mahony clearly wanted it blotted out. It's ironic that purely secular folks have come to the rescue.
Another indication that the True, the Beautiful and the Good can never be separated. When people see the Beautiful, they're seeing the True and the Good, that is, God, even though they may not recognize it. The architectural preservationists have gotten a glimmer of God through this, something I suspect they'd have a hard time doing with Mahony's Monster (the new cathedral).
