Now This Is How A Church Should Be Renovated

Over at the Deacon’s Bench:

See below… and read the story behind it here.

Love it or hate it, you have to admit: it’s a dramatic difference.  I’m reminded of something Fr. George Rutler said a couple years ago, when  I had the privilege of meeting him and serving as a deacon at his gorgeous Church of Our Saviour, in Manhattan.  I complimented him on the church  and he said, “You know how you can tell if a church is beautiful?  Brides.  If brides want to be married there, you’ve done something right.”

Which makes me wonder: which of these two interiors would most brides prefer…?

  1. Just myself, but I always like the less is better idea. I mean I like the older on this one. I like more simple lines myself. But I love the Crucifix, always! It is always central for me at least.
