"...A spiritual temple in the world..."

“God desires to build himself a spiritual temple in the world, a community that adores him in spirit and truth (cf. Jn4: 23-24). But this occasion reminds us also of the importance of the concrete buildings in which the community gathers together to celebrate God’s praises. Every community therefore has the duty to carefully guard their holy structures, which constitute a precious religious and historical patrimony.” --Pope Benedict XVI, (11/9/08).
