    Excellent podcast! Really enjoyed Rafael’s expertise and his insight on what a Catholic Church should look like and what it should feel like. My thoughts and feelings exactly!
    To see an example of the modern church design that is so wrong, look up St. Francis De Sales church in Muskegon, MI. Impressive architectural design, but does not evoke the sacred as a Catholic Church should. A very cold structure.
    With a traditional Catholic Church, I’ve always felt a “warmth” when stepping inside that speaks to the fact that you have entered a right place. Home.
