Monotheon

I think its ok to change the name now eh?

I saw this on American Papist.  I was in the Pantheon when I visited Rome.  It is a stunning place, especially when you realize how old and well preserved it is.  An interesting bit of trivia is that the wood under the ceiling of the entrance is original.  So as you are entering, look up!  They are just ordinary beams made of trees from almost 2000 years ago.

This is a solemn high Mass to celebrate its 1400th year as a Catholic Church.  1400 years... chew on that for a few minutes.

If only Hagia Sophia had held on, it would have topped it! :-)
