  1. Is this picture from an SSPX Mass?

  2. Well I'll be! That is a gorgeous picture and a phenomenal use of HDR photography! The EF and Catholic architecture are sooooo photogenic. Can't say the same for most OF masses OR the office buildings they take place in.

  3. I'd like to live there.

  4. Many more photos here:
