"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

  3. I immediately thought of Magritte as did others. It seems to me the installation would be better elsewhere - although I understand the desire for contrast with the baroque. When I first saw it I thought it had bas-relief - sort of like the Austerlitz column - but it doesn't of course. It's a lot better than the monstrosity in the Viennese cathedral - Hardlicka's B. Restituta. I think something is wrong in Austria.

  4. I dunno. Kind of makes me want to go to confession.

  5. It's actually better than something else in another cathedral?!
