I think this is an exhibit and not an actual church. I hear television newsrooms and studios love the design and wish to purchase the theme for their broadcast studios.
Pope Francis sends message to Bose Liturgical Conference
Pope Francis sends a message to participants attending the 17th International Liturgical Conference which is taking place at the Monastery of Bose.
The 17th International Liturgical Conference "ALTAR - Recent acquisitions, new problems", opens Thursday at the Monastery of Bose in Northern Italy.
The Conference is being organized by the Monastery along with the National Office for Ecclesiastical Cultural Heritage of the Italian Episcopal Conference, in collaboration with the National Council of Architects.
The altar was the theme of the International Liturgical Conference in Bose in 2003 and the symposium is returning to this subject to present the latest results of historical studies in the past fifteen years and to discuss new questions that have arisen.
Particular attention will be given to New Testament foundations of the Christian altar and to its image today.
Marking the opening of the event Pope Francis sent a message Thursday signed by Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin.
In it, the Pope sends his greetings to the participants and expresses the hope that reflections during this symposium will lead to a more mature understanding of “the liturgy as the source and culmination of an ecclesial and personal life full of fraternity.”
Excellent! The Catholics are becoming Protestant, and the Protestants are becoming New Agers.
“mature”...something in synch with progressive thinking and behaving individuals.
“Immature”...all the rest of us.
rcg, that word bothered me too. Did the Pope use it, or was it the author's own word. It is difficult to tell because of the partial quote.
I hope and pray that you were spared from the tornados that passed through the Dayton area. I was amazed at how many there were in just a small area!

How the hell much longer is the maturation process going to take? The best these grown men can do to re-enchant the liturgy is flakeboard?
It being our ardent desire to see the true Christian spirit restored in every respect and preserved by all the faithful, we deem it necessary to provide before everything else for the sanctity and dignity of the temple, in which the faithful assemble for the object of acquiring this spirit from its indispensable fount, which is the active participation in the holy mysteries and in the public and solemn prayer of the Church. - Pius X -
Carol H, bless you for thinking of us. One poor octogenarian was killed in his sleep when a car was thrown through his house, but no other deaths or serious injuries. I think the time of night was a factor in the low casualty count because several markets and arenas were seriously damaged and a roofs were lost. The swarm went about a mile from my house. Power was off only a few hours, never lost water. So everyone moved back in with us to bathe and wash laundry. I sent Fr McDonald a photo of Mary Queen of Martyrs. It was seriously damaged. Holy Family (FSSP) lost power for a couple of days but we just burned more candles. The debris in the road by my house was so bad they used snow plows to clear it. We made the nation news for that. There were 13 tornadoes recorded by sensors; mostly EF 3 or smaller. Did you know they have an EF-0? Seems like a waste of time, but there it is. There was one large one, however, that shutdown the power and moved through town in total darkness, visible only occasionally wreathed in lightning. That is truly an awesome sight.
How the hell much longer is the maturation process going to take?
Well, it is a process that recurs in every generation. The end point is one's entry into heaven.
“Well, it is a process that recurs in every generation. The end point is one's entry into heaven.”
And, again I say, “something in synch with progressive thinking and behaving individuals.”
TBTG not all of us in Holy Mother Church ascribe to that fluid, mushy, counterproductive way of thinking/behaving. If we did, the past 50 years proves the following predicted reality: Financing of our already-struggling Church would worsen, many more parishes close, and even more parishioners leaving or left homeless or lost in a crowd of combined churches struggling to find “...one’s entry into heaven”.
So, good luck with that thinking...
Well, while life is fluid and mushy, there's nothing "counterproductive" in that, and it's not a matter of luck.
rcg, I'm happy that you and your house were spared from the devastation. Praying for the repose of the soul of the man who died, and for the community as they rebuild.
Give thanks to the Lord for He is Good,
His Mercy endureth forever!
OK, I get it now. Church life should imitate secular life, not the reverse. Counterproductive doesn’t even begin to describe...
Again, good luck with that.
No, the Church does not "imitate" secular life. But the Church includes secular life, we are in the world, but not of it.
We are not disembodied spirits free from the struggles, including our individual maturation process, of "secular" life. To expect otherwise is to plan for more frustration than is needed.
