Ballet school or Orthodox Church?

Reactions 
Former Brussels Convent of the Sisters of the Reperation for Sins against the Blessed Sacrament (now known as Sisters of the Eucharist). Decision due in September.
This was the location for the indult Latin Mass until they decided to realise the value of the property.




Rue des Deux Eglises- Two Church Street

Reactions 
 

 

In the good old days, one could look down the street to see the Church of St Josse, but looking up the street, the sight of one of the finest Churches in Brussels was blocked by the construction of Directorate General Development. The power line across the street can be seen in both photos.
What glory does the DG hide!

God so loved the world

Erosio

Reactions 

This piece is sitting immediately in front of the high altar of Brussels Cathedral, as part of an exhibition called CORPUS.

Cathcon met the artist (!) Mr Karabitian and was assured that Erosio has nothing to do with the erotic, but erosion (as in riverbank by the flow of a river). He was neither comforted or consoled.

Feast of St Alphonse Ligouri

A contrast with the previous post.

1 Corinthians 1
21 For seeing that in the wisdom of God the world, by wisdom, knew not God, it pleased God, by the foolishness of our preaching, to save them that believe.
22 For both the Jews require signs, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews indeed a stumblingblock, and unto the Gentiles foolishness:
24 But unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

New "Yuf" advertising campaign from the near bankrupt Diocese of St Poelten in Austria. The plague has spread from the neigbouring Diocese of..... Linz.
