Consecration of Sagrada Familia

So the pope is planning to visit Spain in November and will consecrate the infamous Sagrada Familia.
Regarding the stop in Barcelona, Cardinal Martínez Sistach already last month said the Holy Father had expressed interest in consecrating the church of the Sagrada Familia (Holy Family).

The cardinal noted that the church's architect, Antoni Gaudí, has a cause of canonization being studied.

The church is also important to the Holy Father, according to the cardinal, because of its title, "given the maximum importance that the family has for the Holy Father, since the good of people, society and the Church is directly related with the protection, defense and promotion of the family."
Awesome! Thank you, Benedict!

Are you going to this event tonight in Houston? I flew up to NYC to interpret for him last night, and it was an amazing talk. I don't think you will ever meet someone who "gets" Gaudi like Sotoo does.
