On architectural and heritage grounds alone, the reinstatement of original altar rails and other design features removed in the post Vatican 2 drive to modernize seems like a worthy exercise, with or without a reappraisal of the liturgical considerations.
Could not agree more. Just look at the catalogue of devastation in Ireland among which the most ignorant efforts have been:
1. the detruction of Killarney Cathedral;
2. the destruction of Monaghan Cathedral;
3. the destruction of Longford Cathedral (i.e. before the recent fire);
4. the dectruction of Tornarelli’s High Altar in the Dublin Pro-Cathedral;
5. the decimation of Giacomo della Porta’s High Altar in Thurles Cathedral – which would have brought the police around in anywhere else but Ireland.
6. the attempted destruction of Cobh Cathedral to “plans” by Professor Cathal O’Neill.
This list could continue.
I’m sure it could, if you were bothered to stay on topic.
