  • An introduction, in word and picture, to the mystery of the faith through the things in every Catholic church.

    From the baptismal font to the tabernacle, the symbols we see in church stand for realities that point to the presence of God. Father Champlin takes readers on a tour that begins in the parking lot and ends with a prayer, opening hearts to the meaning of signs too often ignored or taken for granted. He explains the origin and purpose of objects that reveal the sacred, words that echo the voice of God, and sacramentals that lift our hearts.

    Few Catholics, let alone non-Catholics, understand what a treasure house their parish church is. This book provides the map.

    Illustrated with photos from the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Syracuse, New York, the new Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, California and St. Patricks Cathedral, New York City.
