Church Renovation or Restoration? - The future of sacred architecture depends on a rediscovery of both architecture and the sacred. And while there is a great hunger today for both, and legitimate movements seeking these goals, they are pursuing them at this time separately. It is the Church alone who, in seizing the moment, can reunite architecture and the transcendent. A new springtime in the Church's life will produce a new church architecture of great vitality and spirituality.
