Although this is rather victorian neo-medieval architecture (a bit iconoclastic at that), it does at least offer a rare glimpse of a RC Church doing a Traditional Latin Mass behind a screen, something that would seem a natural harmonious fit for a Latin Rite Orthodox Church. There is at least in these pictures a consistent style employed, that of the neo-gothic, it is rare to witness consistent stylistic harmony in Western Rite Churches (regardless of whether they are Orthodox or not) This is a fine example of the benefits of such artistic harmony. This might seem a bit of an idealistic or odd post but I know some people here appreciate this perspective.  ;D

"and for all who are Orthodox, and who hold the Catholic and Apostolic Faith, remember, O Lord, thy servants" - yet the post-conciliar RC hierarchy is tolerant of everyone and everything... except Catholic Tradition, for modernists are as salt with no taste, to be “thrown out and trampled under foot
