Sagrada Família

Calling it "the exact opposite of so many modern tendencies toward bare and empty geometry in which the Christian mystery is lost, instead of making itself seen and lived," Sandro Magister says "this church is growing with a plurality of contributions and styles that recalls that of the medieval cathedrals" — First Mass in the Sagrada Família: The Pope Beatifies Gaudí. "The Sagrada Família is a grandiose open book," he writes: "A theater between heaven and earth in which all the arts come together to enact the sacred history of the world, and draw everyone into the adventure."
