Suitable to Greatness and Majesty

The world thinks that our cathedrals should be less ostentatious, that such an expense is wasted.  What piffle.  We shall go on breaking the alabaster jar forever.  (Mark 14:3-9.)

"The Cathedral Church belongs properly to no particular parish, but that it is the Mother Church of the whole Diocese, such a temple should be built in a manner and style suitable to the Greatness and Majesty of Our Holy Religion."
       -  Bishop Michael Power, builder of St. Michael’s Cathedral
