Synopsis: Renovation of Catholic churches is an issue that has been tearing apart parishes for 35 years. Communion rails have been ripped out, tabernacles hidden, kneelers removed, pews replaced by portable chairs, statues sold to antique dealers, and priceless works of art lost. Are these costly renovations really necessary, many wonder? The man in the pew instinctively resists the modernist design proposals, yet professional church renovators continue their attack in countless parishes across the continent. The Renovation Manipulation exposes the blueprint used by these highly-paid professionals to engineer unnecessary renovations. You'll learn about:
- The Protestant roots of modern Catholic church architecture
- The "re-education" process used to manipulate parishioners into accepting major changes to their church building
- The hallmarks of deceitful renovation schemes, including fabricating the requirements of Church law and Vatican II, false-advertising fund drives, and lame-duck parish committees
- How to respond to propaganda about: placement of the tabernacle, statues, and baptismal font; pews vs. chairs; removing the crucifix, communion rails, and kneelers; church "in-the-round"; and more
This convenient handbook, designed in an easy-to-use reference format, provides parishioners with the necessary knowledge and Church teaching to challenge the prevailing fads and opinions in liturgical design and architecture.
From the Author: For the past four years in my work as editor of St. Catherine Review I have spent considerable time reporting on church renovation disputes, showing exactly how "divisive" the proposals for, and results of, these renovations are. Many post-Vatican II renovations, allegedly predicated on the desirability of building "community" in liturgical worship and parish life, have produced the opposite effect: disunity, discord and alienation sometimes leading to an abandonment of the faith.
Proponents of the post-conciliar church renovations would have us believe the Second Vatican Council called for a new paradigm in the design of Catholic churches, one that justifies radical remodeling of existing structures. Although renovation enthusiasts are fond of invoking the Council, when challenged they cannot cite one relevant passage from the Council's documents to support their claims. The direction these renovations generally take is not one based on Church teaching or even officially approved theological doctrine. Rather, Catholics are being asked to accept the new church designs on the basis of subjective and contrived opinions that are passed off as authoritative mandates of the Church.
The man in the pew instinctively resists the design proposals. But church renovators have learned much in the first two to three decades of their profession's experience with America's Catholic parishes. Today's renovators, those who comprise the archi-liturgical establishment, form an elite few whose modus operandi is to effectively "deprogram" and "re-educate" parishioners in their new paradigm through a carefully devised process, one that is less than honest.
Since I first began reporting on church renovation projects I have heard from Catholics all over the country. Almost all describe the same dishonest process and the same architectural results. Others tell of warning signs of an impending project-capital fund drives, for example, for "repainting" or "restoration" or "expansion." Many simply say: "This once happened to us!"
In short, there is a blueprint for the renovation process. It has been tried in countless parishes across the continent and too often been ruthlessly implemented over the complaints of confused parishioners.
