Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament

The Beautiful Reminder (((HOMILY))): 131st Anniversary of Our Cathedral

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday June 28, 2020

Most kids who grew up on Saturday morning cartoons in the 1980's will know the following famous saying, "More than meets the eye." It is part of the theme song of the Transformers that we all sang along with our little hearts. In many ways, the mission of the Catholic cathedral also matches this song perfectly, especially our own in downtown Sacramento -- The Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. Built 131 years ago a few blocks from the capital building of the most populous state in our nation, commanding the 5th largest economy in the world, the cathedral stands as a visible holy reminder to the rich and powerful that there is "more than meets the eye."
