Pat Shingleton: "Just One Pane"
Saturday's column shared the events of The Cathedral of the Nativity in Biloxi. Erected 26 feet above sea-level, it endured 145 m.p.h. winds that rattled its beautiful stained glass windows during Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005. Father Tony Arguelles road out the storm inside the Cathedral and provided testimony to Father Vic Messina. The wind-field suddenly blew-out one stained glass pane in the apex of the church that depicted St. Theresa of Lizoux, known as St. Theresa of the Child Jesus. At that moment, the pressure inside the Cathedral immediately diminished and the remaining windows stopped rumbling. The Church recognizes St. Theresa's death on Sept. 30, 1897 at the age of 24 and her vows of ministry in doing good on Earth.
