Contrasts

As a matter of contrast with the Benedictine Altar arrangement, here is a pic from another parish church in the Brisbane Archdiocese.


As you can see, no focus on the real sacrifice on the Altar (oops table), no sanctuary. Obviously when the priest celebrates the focus is all on him as we gather around a table in the middle of the room. It speaks clearly of a completely different faith - a protestant approach to faith. All pretty uninspiring really.
If this is the church of the future there is no point in being part of it.

These are the symbols of a dying Church. Everything sacred is being drained out it, like the life blood out of slaughtered beast. There seems to be no hope for those sections of the Church that will not accept leadership from Rome. The good thing is that it will rot away. Only the authentic will survive.
