Is that litter on the altar??
E 'una tragedia. It is very sad when the clear vision of a skilled architect is trashed in order to bring about a silly, therapeutic "space" that ignores dogmatic theology, a glorious tradition, sacred art and a valiant history.Like other students, I would not study or pray in a space that has light blue carpet. Fortunately the walls remain and can wait for a future restoration.
Stained basement carpet.
So many things wrong, I don't know where to begin.Mr. Sonnen, you've posted "What's Wrong With This Picture?"entries before, but this is the saddest I've seen. The peopleresponsible for this have no clue what a Catholic chapel is about, but they seem to be very familiar with the waiting rooms at doctor's offices. Anonymous, re: "Stained basement carpet" comment-- let's pray those stains aren't from the Precious Blood being sloshedaround.
Reminds me of a room in Ushaw College (when it was still an English seminary) where the then President of the college celebrated Mass for CAFOD. He said the complete Mass sitting at a coffee table - yes even the Consecration. And that was where they were training our future priests!!
Saint Paul Uni. The Liturgy of the Word is about "Sharing" in a circle. Didn't you read Vatican II?
I can't even see the altar stone.
