In the striking zone

Heidi Schlumpf at the National Catholic Reporter weighs in on the Cathedral Bronze Controversy.
I've been a supporter of Weakland, one who has been disappointed by him surely. But this does seem like an odd choice.

The Mary Mother of the Church statue above the relief panel, by Chicago artists Jeffrey and Anna Koh-Varilla, is striking, though.
Reminiscent of the follow-through of a pre-conciliar nun who just launched an eraser at a student in the back row.
