Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

A Gem in Geneva – Part II

Previously in this series

Here are some more pictures from my visit to St. Stephen’s Church in Geneva. The sculptor who decorated this church is the same, if I remember correctly, who also did the work in Blessed Sacrament Church in Rochester. Anyone know his name? I apologize for not researching it.

I would call this a beautiful Catholic church. How do we know if a Catholic church is beautiful? Is there any standard we can apply? Is it just a matter of opinion and personal taste? I’ve published here, before, my thoughts on that subject. If you are interested, browse through our topics list on the right side of the homepage. I have several posts under the headings beauty, beautiful, Catholic images and a few more.

    Now that’s how to do statues! Forget those pastel-colored things that look like department-store mannequins (what St. Josemaria said looked like they were made of candied sugar.)

    Beautiful church but this design always seemed to be kind of “Anglican” to me.
