Cardinal in a Hard Hat for Labor Day

Following up on a previous post about the renovation work for St Patrick Cathedral, New York, here is a photo posted to facebook today by  Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York. Cardinal Dolan blessed the team working on the renovations and construction to mark Labor Day this weekend.

This image goes well with the nuns in hardhats posted with the story on the convent at Ronchamp. Love seeing photos of clergy in hardhats and vestments. It is in part a juxtaposition, but mostly an affirmation of the sanctity of the work of church-building. But the Cardinal's hard hat should really be red!
