I live in an area that’s been Catholic since 1630 or so, I don’t know why we don’t seem to have any attractive churches, just modern ones. Ick. The one I’m getting inducted into is awfully plain and modern, which I don’t find conducive to spiritual elevation. But that’s just my own lack of spiritual maturity talking.

(I could agree wth you, but then we'd both be wrong.)

My brother-in-law, who is an R.C. priest, has said that as long as the words uttered by the priest are correct, that the Eucharist is indeed the Body of Christ, so no matter how cranky of a priest, or modern of a building, the Host is indeed Jesus, and that has gotten me through many an otherwise uninspiring Mass. But I wish all churches looked like St. John's, too, and I'm even starting to wish all Masses were Tridentine. If you could have joined me at this Mass, you probably wouldn't have wanted to leave. So many people just stayed in the pews after Mass both times we were there. What a joy! So much peace and inspiration.:)
