Is this the 8th Century?
The architects listed at this blog, for example, are doing their part to restore in the Church a sense of beauty and its travelling companion—i.e., a sense of the sacred.
Q. What do we mean by "incarnational" Christians?A. We mean Christians who accept the implications of the Incarnation of the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. He is the image of the unseen God. Christ made manifest is proof of God's approval of images.
For far too long, Catholics have been deprived of the richness of the Faith by people who are threatened by the appreciation of spiritual intimacy with the Lord, truth and goodness that beautiful images foster in the believer. The Lord has given us the power to make beautiful things which honour His name and lead people home to God. We are created in the image of God. God is beautiful and makes beautiful things. How do we explain to the God Who made us in His own image the ugly churches that have been made for the past few decades?
The modern iconoclasts are to be pitied. They are focussed on material sustenance to the exclusion of man's spirit. They cannot understand nor appreciate that spiritual sustenance is essential to the well being of man.
Iconodules—gird yourselves for battle! Apprentice with the best painters, musicians, architects, sculptors, metal smiths and fabric artists. Let your joy and passion for the goodness of God's creation consume banality and lukewarm faith.
