A New Cathedral, As God Intended

Beautiful! The new cathedral in Pristina

I have written about the possible purchase of the so-called Crystal Cathedral from the Diocese of Orange, and suggested that the construction ex novo of a cathedral made in the good old way would be a far preferable solution to the conversion of a protestant temple without the typical aesthetic (and spiritual) feature of a cathedral.

From the always excellent Rorate Caeli, an example of what can be done: the new Cathedral of Pristina, Serbia/Kosovo.

As you can see from the photograph, this is a very traditional, beautiful, inspiring building. It is also encouraging that it should be build in a region tormented by civil war not many years ago.

The future looks, thank God, more and more similar to our beautiful past.
