Catholic Churches are meant to be beautiful. Only the best for the King.

The beauty of these churches is not so much for God, but for us. The images, mosaics, stained-glass windows, the pews, the columns, the altar, the organ, etc. – these things are there to assist us in our worship of the Lord. The sense of awe and splendor that you can experience in a beautiful church doesn’t take away the magnificence of God, it only enhances it.

Beauty can save the world.

Even when they are destroyed, they remain beautiful.

In the spirit of Halloween (All Hallows Eve), I thought that taking a look at some images of the skeletons of ruined Catholic Churches would be interesting and also to show that even when the worst things happen, beauty still remains because God always remains until the end of the age.
