Our Lord in the Attic
#1
Today I learned about a 17th century house Church in Amsterdam, used by Catholics when they were prohibited from engaging in public worship. Even if you are not a fan of Baroque, I'm sure you will appreciate the beauty of the Church given the circumstances. Perhaps it can also be an inspiration for us as we face a society that is increasingly hostile to the faith
