An article on Holy Redeemer Church in Montrose. This church was recently dedicated by Cardinal Mahoney. This was a new church built to replace a mission church.
As with the trend in new churches this picture demonstrates a game you can play. Like the popular picture game Where’s Waldo? we now have a similar quest Where’s the Tabernacle?” This version of the game seems really difficult and I have not figured it out yet.
Maybe it is just me, but when I see this crucifix it looks like the nails fell out of his hands and Christ is falling off the Cross. I realize the trend in church art is to try to deemphasize the Crucifixion and to emphasize the resurrection. But I don’t think the artistic efforts that are halfway between these two events have been very successful. Maybe a bloodless Crucifixion fits our culture which see itselft as sinless.
