Ask a Question
I have just came across the article by M. Cassey and agree wholeheartedly with the writer's theme. It is so hard to enter many suburban Catholic churches and be inspired to lift one's heart and soul to the Lord thanks to the often very poor or inadequate architecture, internal design, crucifixes and religious images (or indeed lack thereof) - not to mention the (mis)placement of the tabernacle.
It requires a journey to a very few select churches, such as St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney, to be in surroundings where the awesomeness of our God can be immediately detected. However, I do not despair because even in the most common church our Lord presides in the most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and in the tabernacle. That is my comfort and hope.
