Courtesy of an Italian Website and the Forum Catholique – 500 photos of the Novus Ordo. (Well, almost 500 – a perceptive reader has identified at least one Anglican service at Trinity Church right here in little old New York). But no need to worry! After all, unlike the Traditional Mass all this is not a mere fashion that will go away…

“All over the country, buildings formerly owned by the Catholic Church are being repurposed.”
“The church’s divestment of buildings has been going on for a decade. Sometimes, there’s pushback from the parishes where divestment occurs, which in many cases supported the development and maintenance of those properties. NPQ would love to hear how other buildings sold by the Catholic Church are being put to new uses, and how the local parishes and community have responded”

“But when I heard how many people had strayed from Holy Name because of the modern altar, I got on board. It would be part of the evangelization of Windsor Terrace.” (The pastor of Holy Name parish)

Yet me must not forget that this success comes at a bitter cost: that altar came from a historic Brooklyn church recently destroyed. And sold to developers for a great sum.
