But only in a comparison to demonstrate the place of aesthetics in worship. <BR/><BR/>I am reminded of the saying "Do not scorn the imperfect while you strive for the perfect!"

The photographs demonstrate how estetics influence worship.(Not to be degrading) but compare the photographs of the offered Mass to the artwork on the website in the upper right corner. Which setting would you prefer to receive the Body of Christ? I think of my old parish, a Novus Order loving parish, set in the typical fashion (luckily the choir is still in the loft). It would be hard for me to conjure the correct solemnity for the Tridentine Mass in such a setting.Christopher Mandzoknoreply@blogger.com
