What's in a Name?

The Diocese of Orange  has formally acquired the iconic Crystal Cathedral and its campus in Garden Grove.

Before the building may be used as a Catholic cathedral several design and other changes must be made. In addition, the Bishop will re-name the site. You can be a part of that process by submitting your suggestion for the cathedral's new name. The deadline for suggestions is February 20, 2012.

Following a review of all suggestions, Bishop Brown will determine the cathedral's name and announce it at the appropriate time.

Bishop Brown has asked that any suggested name have a "Christological" relevance, that is, the name must refer to the nature and person of Christ or to his activities as illustrated by the gospels.

"It is our goal to make the new cathedral a gathering place for Catholics and other people of faith. By asking for naming suggestions we begin the process of connecting this wonderful structure and its future to our faith and the larger community."
-Bishop Tod D. Brown-

So readers, what suggestions will we send to our friends in Orange for their  shiny new Cathedral? I think it should capture the spirit of the new translation of the Mass and be called something like The Consubstantial Cathedral. What are your thoughts?
