November 2006: the interior nave and choir loft...
Providence allots so much to us daily! Take a look at the exciting progress in the restoration of this Catholic parish in Russia! You, too, can play a part in this epic project.
Will the walls reamain white in these years or shall it see a full Gothic restoration? The latter is our response, so please be generous!
Gothic symbols, as used in art and architecture, are ornamental details emblematic of the great truths of Christianity and so teach without words.
Even in the Roman catacombs, where we see at least many rude paintings, we see more art than here! Emblems and ornaments typifying the faith of Catholics: emblematic momograms and letters and images of saints ornamented with emblems denoting their virtue are all so Catholic. Lets share this beauty even in our generation.
