I am very tired of looking at Catholic Churches that look like this one (Annunziata in the Archdiocese of New Orleans). I am greatly saddened that some churches have taken down their Crucifixes and replaced them with images of the Risen Christ. Remember, St. Paul didn't say that he preached Christ Risen; he said, "I preached Christ Crucified" (1 Cor 1:23). An image of the Resurrected Christ may not be used in place of the cross on or near the altar. (CMRR 64)
I see true beauty in the churches from Rome and many European churches. Unlike most American churches, the older ones were built to last and the art and architecture are just breathtaking. If you have any photos that you took of any beautiful Catholic Church, I'd love to receive them. I'm really interested in seeing good art and architecture in Catholic Churches. In your email, please let me know if I may post the photos on my blog.
Please email images to me through the link in my sidebar. Thank you in advance!
