Catholics help repair Anglican cathedral

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese has pitched in $25,000 to help with millions in repairs needed to the Washington National Cathedral (Episcopal).

“The National Cathedral holds a special place in the hearts of all of us in Washington,” said Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington.
“So many recognize it as a national house of prayer, and indeed its magnificent Gothic spires are a reminder of our constant need to raise our hearts in prayer to God in the midst of all our daily preoccupations.”

It is nice to hear of Christians from different demonimational streams looking to help one another (since all too often we hear Episcopalians and Catholics bashing one another for being either too rigidly narrow-minded or too liberal and heretical). The full story is here.
