“Our Christian people regard with great joy everything that contributes to the splendor of the ceremonies. Jesus—who was poor in His private life—received ointment on His feet. See Thomas Aquinas (Prima Secundae, q. 102, art. 5, ad 10) and the holy Curé of Ars. The Church has always loved beautiful churches, and so forth. We must preserve our sacred patrimony and make sure sacred objects do not become secular possessions.”
— Abbot & Council Father denouncing “noble simplicity” during Vatican II

Church Madness 2016
published 13 April 2016 by Andrew Leung

AM NOT SURE if many of you are aware of this: there is an online competition going on right now! Church Madness 2016—a contest which allows everyone to vote and select the most beautiful Catholic church in the country—is entering its final week.

The competition started back in March with sixty-four nominated churches around the country. It is now down to four churches called the “Ferial Four.” There will be two churches left after tomorrow, so put down your vote now! You can also check the result of the previous match-ups on the same website (Most of the nominations are great! But be warned; there are some really bad ones, especially from the west coast.)

The four churches that entered the semi-finals are: St. John Cantius Church in Chicago, the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in DC, Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville and the Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City.
