I like this one.

Me too.  Its not as detailed or ornate as the old pre-1940 churches, but it still looks traditional. It's a lot better than the "circus tent" style churches that dominated the 1960s and 70s.

or the generic multi-purpose worship spaces that dominated the 80s and 90s.

*nods head*

By the time of Vatican II the churches looked more like off-broadway theatres and college classrooms rather than holy places to worship.

This one.  The other one looks Orthodox (or maybe a sports stadium).

It's beautiful on the inside too.  Eastern-influenced.  I do wish the altar (which is used for ad-orientem as well -- it's a freestanding altar and there is no other) were better suited to the TLM (with steps).

New York Catholic,
Thank you.
I thought I embedded the image.
Please tell how to do so?

No problem.  You used the right tag but you have to put the url for the image *in between* the two tags if that makes sense.  Not before or after or next to, but between them.  You can hit reply to any post with a picture embedeed (you don't have to actually post the reply) to see what it looks like.
