Our Lady of the Freeways

Is Los Angeles's new cathedral worth the price?

From Commonweal, February 28, 2003. A review essay on the Catheral of Our Lady of the Angels: Where the Church & City Gather.

"The surprise is that critics have had only good to say about the cathedral complex, whose outer aspect is fully as forbidding as that of any downtown Los Angeles skyscraper--so forbidding that the place initially seems to have no front entrance at all."
