S MANY READERS are already aware, there is some degree of controversy over the removal of icons in the magnificent Church of Our Savior on Park Avenue in Manhattan. I have visited this parish numerous times and have always been impressed by the beauty of the space and the reverence it inspires in visitors.
The issue of the vanishing icons has been well documented in recent weeks. Instead of adding another account, I will simply direct those interested in learning more to read the following articles:
Vandalism with Intent (First Things)
Naked in New York: The Unceremonious Stripping of Our Savior (OnePeterFive)
Our work at Corpus Christi Watershed is intended to be in service of Beauty and the Church. We hope, therefore, that the uncommon beauty of this splendid church will be preserved.
