Comparing and Concluding
What do the structures of the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and St. Micheal The Archangel say to you? The antique walk is unique and imprinted while the modern day journey is implemented and mixed in with the traditional. What does this mean? As I went through the Catholic Shrine, I discovered a very nuanced theme than the modern St Michael the Archangel. The Catholic Shrine depicts a more aged structure, a preserved antique church, bringing in an essence of modernism, but keeping its original tone. On the other side of the coin, St Micheal the Archangel has a simple yet elegant structure with a very modern day architecture. But what are we observing? Through this journey, we have seen similarities and differences in the way both churches are structured, but Overall from the history of both the Old Catholic Shrine and Modern Catholic Church, my experience of being Catholic, my experience in both churches, and the Roman Catholic Church in general has shown a profound evolution over the years due to different objectives, necessities, issues, and Vatican II that they had in the moment creating those different traditions, liturgy, rituals, structure in the built environment, and more, but even in all that change from centuries ago till now, the Catholic Church still persists the way it is meant to persist and what it stands for, and the root of its birth, all of its importance and meaning.
