Bell towers in danger

Is it already too late?

See also 40000 Belltowers. What a remarkable site chronicling the Churches of France, she who is after all the Eldest Daughter of the Church.

Among the photographs, tragedies at the Church of St Georges des Gardes

And the Church of St Vaast

Why is this happening? An article in the International Herald Tribune.

The Church of Geste referred to at the beginning of the article.

The Mass in Geste after the closure. The priest totally abuses the meaning of the Gospel (actually by coincidence for this Sunday) and tells his congregration that they are living stones.

All that remains of the old Church in Fief-Sauvin, also in the article.

My heart breaks.

We've all heard of worker priests


But only in Lille can be found a factory church. The Church of St Vincent.

Just finished reading.

If anyone wants to understand what is going on in the Church today.

A magnificent read.

The Resurrected Christ of the Mill Hill Missionaries


Alien image of an angel.

Erected in 2005 on the facade of the Church of Lachapelle-sous-Rougemont, Diocese of Belfort-Montbeliard. They call it "The Guardian Angel"- looks more like the angel of death.
