  1. Wow. Those are brilliant but devastating photos. Great work to get the before and after but it looks so cruel with the beauty of them beforehand

  2. It is about time for the church to wake up. Soon people will start asking where their money/donations go…It is time to act responsibly now before the people do a rally against the church. Thank you.

  3. @ catholic church management, what happened to the tithes offered to you by your patrons? was well spent for your personal use?

  4. What is said in the aforementioned is true. The message is now for all to make a change or the time to change.

  5. This could be a wake up call to the Catholic Priest to stop meddling with the affairs of the state, but take care of their own churches instead.

  6. The message here is very clear…. the real God not only doesn’t dwell in those stone buildings but also despise what with in its walls and what it stands for

  7. If they only spend the Millions on retrofitting this Churches instead of keeping it in their own pocket it will be one of the best places that the pilgrimage tour will be tourinng.
