Faithful Rebel points to what he calls perhaps the Ugliest Catholic Church in History- “Peter and Paul” Catholic Church in Maassluis, Holland.
For me it doesn’t strike me enough to elicit ugly, but it certainly doesn’t raise my mind up to God other than the phrase god-awful. It looks more like a discarded should be joint from some gigantic robot. Maybe it is a transformer church.
More than meets the eye
Churches in Disguise
Though looking at the Transformers theme I didn’t realize how filled with the Gospel it was.
To stand divided we will surely fall
Until our darkest hour
When the light will save us all
This page shows the construction and the interior. Some of the statues inside are quite nice. Others leave something to be desired.
Something about the proportions of this crucifix seem off to me. Maybe it is the people standing next to me, but I associate alien with it and that one of Jesus’s last words was "Phone home."
Though nothing prepared me for what is probably the most unfortunate statue in history to reside in a Catholic Church. In addition the eyes really creep me out.
Quite as unfortunate as this stained glass window.
