    The ugliest Catholic Church church?

    "On a totally unrelated note: St. John's Abbey is home to perhaps the ugliest Catholic church on the face of the Earth, and I couldn't resist posting a picture of it, so here you go..."

    I think that not so long ago, I used missellettes produced by this group. The songs were not fun.

    I am mostly convinced that architecture mirrors the people who built it (like all those 1960's monstrosities) . If that is true, this place is sad. Although they are by no means alone.

    If you have a picture of another ugly Catholic building, please send. I think it is permissible dark humor.

    That's a good article Pap.

    and "And now a new trend has begun to emerge - that of restoring re-ordered churches to their original forms. The final chapter of Ugly as Sin shows a number of examples to lift the heart."

    is some good news.
