Look at the sweater. And the table in the back

Stop taking the dioceses and their messages serious. It does not matter anymore what this priest tells us.

Oh, I've seen worse, well dependent on, what you think is worse, sheer plain functionality as a table - turned alter with no sacred value ( i.e. the norm of relics and ritual blessings etc.) Or something truly and hideously, vile, diabolical and UGLY, as in something one would expect from the over-retirement- age - but - it's ok - ' cause -I'm an -avant-guarde- artsy-fartsy-euro- Cardinal- AKA …More

As an aside, I have a dear friend from childhood that grew up in a strict German Lutheran household, went to a Lutheran school with his 2 siblings , his mother was the organist and choir director for 45 years and so forth. His Father had a hobby of wood working and has produced some beautiful pieces of furniture over the years. In 1977 his church was expanded and he was contracted to make the " alter table " He did just that. It turned out beautifully and is still in use. It was the second one he made. The first one still resides in his kitchen . It has benches to match. It truly is the table upon which every meal is taken!
Yet, what is so commonly seen in NO parishes? Just that , a common table, not for a sacrifice, a table to share a " common meal", the work of human hands( not divinely inspired either) I realize this post is long and not very interesting, but thanks for bearing through if you could!
