My house shall be called a house of prayer

but you have turned it into an advertising spot.

St Stephen's Cathedral Vienna; the only Cathedral in the world that takes advertising. "No house is built forever" the slogan runs from the Erste Bank. The Bank maybe supporting the restoration fund, but what true friend of the Church would insist on advertising.
Matthew 6:3. 'But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth.'

Father Zohldorf's Prayer

Oratio ante colligationem in terrete:
Ominpotens aeterne Deus,
qui secundum imaginem Turam nos plasmasti
et omnia bona, vera, et pulchra,
prasertm in divina persona Unigeniti Filii Tui
Domini nostri Iesu Christi, quaerere iussisti,
praesta, quasemus,
ut, per intercessionem Sancti Isidori,
Episcopi et Doctoris,
in peregrinationibus per interrete,
et manus oculosque ad quae Tibi sunt placita intendamus
et omnes quos convenimus cum caritate
ac patientia accipidamus.
Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen

A Prayer before logging onto the internet
Amighty and eternal God,
who created us in Thy image
and bade us to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful
especially in the divine person of Thy Only-begotten Son, and our Lord jesus Christ,
grant, we beseech Thee,
that through the intercession of Saint Isidore, Bishop and Doctor,
during our journeys through the internet
we will direct our hands and eyes only
to that which is pleasing to Thee
and react with charity and patience all
those souls whome we encounter
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


who clearly has left buildings behind.
