An elderly woman was being conducted through a great cathedral in Europe. The guide spoke of its beauty of design, calling attention to the statues and painting. The woman was unimpressed. At the conclusion of the tour she asked the guide, "How many souls have been saved here this year? How many people come to worship God here?"

"My dear lady," said the guide, "this is a cathedral, not a chapel."

That’s the trouble. We have too many cathedrals and too few chapels.
