Muslim call to prayer from Church in Mainz.


They claim it is an "art event"- mixing of church bells and the call to prayer.

They claim this has belonged to tradition in Würzburg for many years!!! Do they really know no better?


They also filled their cathedral with chairs....what they were trying to prove is elusive as with all modern art.

If anyone says that the ceremonies, vestments, and outward signs which the Catholic Church uses in the celebration of masses, are incentives to impiety rather than stimulants to piety, let him be anathema.


The Council of Trent settles the matter. here the wonderful Cardinal Burke in Vienna- more photos to follow.

Great book to overcome the theology of Cardinal Kasper and his kind


Worship space for nuns

Benedictines of the Monastery of Au in Switzerland worship here.
 The tabernacle!

Modernism- sworn enemy of beauty.

Aukirche in Monschau, 1910

The same in 1962- by which time a "people's" altar had arrived, after a restoration of 1937.

This after a "restoration" in 1966.

It was atthe beginning of a rather inglorious career for the architect, Stephen Legge (he died in 2005) and his wife Ursula.
