Holy Trinity Church in Boston is closing June 30th, 2008

These two websites have more information about Holy Trinity along with pictures of the stunning architecture and sacred art.

Visit here for the pictures.

And here for history.

We have a marble reredros.

Exquisite Stations of the Cross.

Parish of the famous Fr. Francis X. Weisner, author of The Easter Book and the Christmas Book.

A Church that has served the poor and unfortunate for years with social service programs.

Home of the Latin Mass.

History, liturgy, beauty, tradition, charity versus a commercial real estate deal.

I don't even think they thought twice.

All that money, (the property is likely to fetch several million once the wrecking ball clears away all the trappings of Christianity), and the Latin Mass is exiled from Boston at the same time.

That's what they call a "two-fer".

What more can I say... Anything I add would be uncharitable.

And I think I've got that covered!

Though I prefer to consider it righteous indignation.

At this point of the sad story I can't help but considering I have been blessed in visiting Holy Trinity and attending Latin Mass there, some years ago. The thought of all the beauty and the faith testimonies that will be lost sadden me beyond any words. May God forgive the persons who are responsible of wasting those spiritual treasures.
