Many parts, one body

A significant part of Father Raniero Cantalamessa's Good Friday homily from St. Peter's emphasized spiritual and ecumenical unity within Christendom.

It was a passionate, visionary call for all religious groups to put asides petty differences to focus on Jesus of Nazareth.

Cantalamessa's call for unity conjured St. Paul's 'many parts, but one body' speech in 1 Corinthians and brought to mind a recent email message about an amazing Lego church.

. . . a year and a half of planning, building and photographing.

. . . more than 75,000 pieces of Lego.

. . .
features a balcony, a Narthex, stairs to the balcony, restrooms, coat rooms, several mosaics, a nave, a baptistery, an altar, a crucifix, a pulpit and an elaborate pipe organ.

The Lego Abston Church of Christ - one amazing structure made up of many parts and a testament to human imagination and faith.
