A Priest Forever
Archdiocesan Priest Graves
The grave directly in the front of the cross was Cardinal Ritter.
He's at the New Cathedral now.
Monsignors are to the left in the back.
Really Really Old Priests graves.
I think the newest I found was 1920.
Many parishes had the monuments erected for their pastors.
Archbishop Kenrick's tomb is directly in front of the crucifix.
Bishop Kain's tomb is to the left.
Gothic Spire Monument
I've seen angels, crosses, hearts, lambs.
This is a first.
I didn't realize the mausoleum was so totally cool. There was a chapel downstairs. On the first floor there was an altar where one could theoretically say Mass. All of the windows were stained glass.
Symbol of eternal life
Ceiling on the first floor, in the chapel area.
"I am the Resurrection and the Life,
He that believeth in Me, although dead,
shall have eternal life."
All of the stained glass windows are of this style.
There is a stained glass window at the end of each hall.
The halls are named after either Mary's various names or
the different names for Jesus.
Pray for the Souls of the Faithfully departed.
God is Love
View from the Back Pew
Looks rather like the Creation
St. Francis of Assisi
This window was off the side down one of the hallways.
There is a squirrel, bird, bunny and a wolf.
Death of St. Joseph
I've never seen a statue of St. Anne like this.
