The Beautiful old Altar of St. Patricks, a Lost Heritage
The Beautiful old Altar of St. Patricks La Rochelle,(my home parish), consecrated by the late and saintly Bishop Cox O.M.I, in memory of all those fallen in the first Great War.
The picture dates from the year 1969 taken by my Grandfather on the occasion of my Mothers First Holy Communion, toward the end of this same year, this beautiful church was demolished and this beautiful terracotta masterpiece was lost to history.
The Sad conseqences of the implementation of the supposed 'directives' of Vatican II.
