From Gerard Serafin's site, these photos of the Proto-Cathedral of St Joseph in Bardstown, Kentucky, after renovation and before. Here is the old church that--at what expense?--was deemed unworthy of the 'new liturgy' and needed to be made adapted to 'the spirit of Vatican II,' Gerard Serafin writes. "Which church would captivate our children's imagination more? Which church would 'speak' more to the broken-hearted, the sorrowful, the lost? Which church seems to sing the glories of creation and of art and of 'holiness' and of 'catholic fulness'? I know which church would have the feel of 'home' for me! I know which church would transport me into the Presence and the communion of the saints!"
