Altars in Finland / Altares en Finlandia / Auteuls en Finlandia

Comparing altars / Comparando altares / Comparant auteutels

Can those altars in poor parishes be beautiful or do we need “golden altars”? What about modern churches (two last photos) / Pueden aquellos altares en
parroquias pobres ser hermosos o necesitamos “altares de oro”? ¿Qué piensa Vos acerca iglesias modernas (los dos últimas fotos) / Peuvent ces autels dans
de pauvres paroisses être beaux ou avons-nous besoin des “autels d’or”? Comment Vous trouvez le même chose avec églises modernes (les deux dernièrs
photos)?

  1. Bonjour,
    Ces églises sont très lumineuses. Ma préférence va vers celles aux boiseries blanches : Pyhäjärvi,Konginkangas,Konginkangas…
    Les fresques de Nivala sont sobres et belles.
    L’architecture contemporaine de Lieksa se marie bien avec le clocher traditionnel.
    Une réussite.
    Je n’avais jamais vu ces sortes de barrières qui entouent les autels.

  2. Bonjour Marion.

    J’apprécie ton avis beaucoup. Je ne pouvait pas imaginer comment les autres voient ces autels. Bon week-end.

  3. I’d prefer the altar of the old churches because they have a lot of history. Gold altars, why not? ;)Modern altars are much simpler but when I go to mass, it doesn’t matter if they are gold painted or modern.

    Your pictures are beautiful. I think I will be visiting this site more soon.🙂

    Thanks for visiting my blogsite!

    • Hello The local guide. I know that, because I have been in the Azores for example. But what I like in cemeteries in Portugal are “Azulejos”. They are great. Thank You for Your kind comment. Saudação.
