En ny prestegenerasjon fokuserer på skjønnhet, Kirken gjenoppbygges

En artikkel i Catholic Herald skriver om dette (og muligens overdriver de litt). De skriver bl.a.:

.. The Catholic Church is breathing life back into Old England, and the Corpus Christi Church (in London) is an obvious place to start. First opened in 1874, it was built in reparation for sins committed against the Blessed Sacrament during the Reformation. Sadly, it fell into decline and disrepair. The truth is that the English church has been through two iconoclastic periods: the 16th-century Protestant one and the liberal revolution of the Seventies, which did just as much to strip our altars and degrade our churches. The latter reforms were sadder because the Catholics inflicted them on themselves. There was no glorious martyrdom this time around. Just self-harm.

Today, however, a new spirit is stirring. Popular devotions are back; confessions are on the up; and a new generation of priests is reviving beauty and the Old Rite. It’s a restoration. In 10 years’ time, the Corpus Christi procession will be a feature of many local churches – and the English unbelievers will watch and think, “Ooo, that looks interesting. How do I join in?” That’s the way you convert. With magnificence.
