Video: The Transformation of an Altar

Fr. Z has an amazing find that I’d like to share with my readers. As he explains it:

This is a 5:25 length video of the transformation of a typical modernistic free-standing altar into a very beautiful ad orientem altar. The setting is a church in France where the FSSP are able to work. The French text says the transformation took 15 minutes. The video is accelerated. This could be VERY instructive for priests in parishes. VERY instructive. I recommend you make this little video known and loved.

The video, at the very least, shows the stark contrast between the modernist and traditional aesthetic and perhaps gives some hope of reclaiming beauty to those currently worshiping in desacralized churches.

Isn’t that wonderful? The only thing I could hope for would be that the pews shown at the end of the video were chock full of the faithful. Oh well, in time.
