Sweep Out the New and Bring in the Old

Fr. Rutler on the Shrine to Cardinal John Henry Newman being erected at the Church of Our Saviour in New York City, to be dedicated and blessed by Archbishop Dolan on September 23 [emphasis added]:
The shrine is in the place of one of four confessionals. Many confessions are heard daily in the parish. This fourth confessional, after Vatican II, was enlarged to serve as a Reconciliation Room with chairs and other furnishings. Later, that use was ended and the space served for storage. It visually blocked the St. Jude shrine. The carvings have been preserved and the original woodwork has been restored to its original dimensions.
