For Fr. Phillips, A Study in Contrasts

Over at Mahound’s Paradise, St. John Cantius parishioner Oakes Spalding has a post up about Fr. Frank Phillips, who, having not been allowed to return to the parish he built up as a center of Catholic restoration in America, will be sent to St. Louis by his superior, where his larger order, the Resurrectionists, have a seminary.

Are the following comparisons fair?

Of course not. Cantius has better photographers.

It’s a devastating comparison, and worth viewing the whole thing for those who are following this story.
