Closing Churches

Abandoned church in NY
Fr. Z writes about abandoned churches. There are pictures. He says:

  • When people value something, they pay for it. 
  • When Catholics lose their Catholic identity, they stop valuing Catholic things. 
  • When the Church’s pastors compromise Catholic identity in their preaching and, above all, liturgical are celebrandi, people lose their Catholic identity.
Original article is at HuffPo with many more haunting photos.

I wonder if anyone got any photos of St. Patrick's. They might want to get some photos of IHM before its gone, too.

What with tent meetings, healing services, Protestant-based adult catechesis between Masses on Sunday, it is probably safe to say that All Saints Parish is well on its way to losing its Catholic identity.
