Traveling To Mass

San Fernando CathedralThis is the altar in the San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio, TX. My wife, Cindy, and I traveled together for a change to a conference there and attended Ash Wednesday Mass.

San Fernando Cathedral has always been at the center of San Antonio. It is a special place that occupies a unique position in this city and for the many visitors who come by the thousands every year.

From its founding on March 9, 1731 by a group of 15 families who came from the Canary Islands at the invitation of King Phillip V of Spain, this church was planned to be at the center of the life of this city.

Statue of St. AnthonyCindy went on a very short tour downtown and passed this outdoor statue of St. Anthony, patron of the town.

We were also in Grapevine, TX where we attended Mass on Saturday and Sunday at St. Francis of Assisi.

Although traveling does get old, the opportunity to see so many churches and attend Mass in so many places is a bright spot.
