From the authors of The Mass: The Glory, the Mystery, the Tradition, Donald Cardinal Wuerl and Mike Aquilina, comes an examination of the places Catholics call home, on sale today! From the shape of the building, to the candles, to the poor box, The Church looks at the elements that are a part of every Catholic church—from St. Peter’s Cathedral to your modern, hometown parish—and explains the religious and historical importance of the architecture and traditions. In this blog series, we offer a glimpse into this insightful and beautiful book.
Join us next week as we look at a brief history of churches, and discuss some key architectural features, and the spiritual meanings behind them.
In the meantime, please enjoy (and share!) this video trailer for The Church.
