Wreckovations, defintions

def: wreckovate: To go beyond what Vatican II said. (i.e: Removal of altar rails, moving Jesus away from the center of the Church, removal of statues, Churches in the round, making altars that look more like dinner tables, etc)

def: partially wreckovated: To not completely wrecovate (i.e: just the altar rails were moved, or partially torn down, or the tabernacle was moved, and the altar rails were not, or some other combination)

def: incomplete renovation: The restoration of the Church to it’s original form but not quite complete.

def: biult wreckovated: Modeern Churches, which are biult hideously

How to get your Church removed from the list?
e-mail me stating what your Church has done to remove any of the wreckovations caused by the liberalizaion of Vatican II, or just convince me that it’s not wreckovated.

This is not official Church teaching, this is only my opinion. Although I’m not the only one with this opinon. I have been to all of these Churches, so my opinions are valid. As I’ve said, if you disagree with my opinions, please let me know 🙂
