Picture is of the restoration of St. Joseph Cathedral in Sioux falls in progress.
More pictures of the progress can be found at the St. Joseph Cathedral website.

This coming friday is the Solemnity of St. Joseph. Canon 1251 from the Code of Canon Law applies to this Solemnity:

"Abstinence from eating meat or another food according to the prescriptions of the conference of bishops is to be observed on Fridays throughout the year unless they are solemnities; abstinence and fast are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and on the Friday of the Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ."

Why I Love Pope Benedict XVI

"Following Vatican Council II some people were convinced that all was new, that a new Church existed, that the pre-conciliar Church had come to an end and that there would be another, completely different Church, an anarchic utopia. Yet thanks to God the wise helmsmen of the ship of Christ, Paul VI and John Paul II, defended on the one hand the novelty of the Church and, at the same time, the uniqueness and continuity of the Church, which is always a Church of sinners, and always a place of grace." - Pope Benedict XVI
