Critical reviews (by Lutheran pastors and church musicians) of books and other resources for Christian worship, preaching, and church music from a perspective rooted in Holy Scripture, the Lutheran Confessions and good common sense. LHP Quarterly Book Review asks, "Is it worth the money to buy, the time to read, the shelf space to store, and the effort to teach?"
In L'Hospitalet, near Barcelona, a priest let a bunch of graffiti artists go to town on his church. Specifically, on the dome ceiling above the main altar. You know, the space Michelangelo liked to paint. The Santa Eulalia church is neo-Romanesque in design, with a Catalan twist. Inside it's austere. The walls are painted nondescript colors, the statues of Jesus, the Virgin Mary and the Saints are simple. To compensate Father Ramon Borr decided to make the main dome a little different.
The ceiling over the sanctuary in L'Hospitalet's Santa Eulalia church is decorated with a romanesque painting done by graffiti artists "Rudi" and "House." Father Ramon Borr found them online and convinced them to accept the challenge - and brighten up his austere church. (Photo: Anne Cassuto)
