Underground Cathedrals

By Mark Patrick Hederman

Published by Columba Press

'My proposal is that, at this time, the Holy Spirit is unearthing an underground cathedral in Ireland which could help to replace the pretentious, over-elaborate Irish Catholic architecture of the twentieth century. An underground cathedral is a metaphor which describes an alternative place and time of worship.'

Coupled with very incisive and honest comments on the current state of the church, and with a reflective meditation on the Murphy Report in the Dublin Archdiocese, Abbot Hederman offers a visionary and very stimulating image of how things might be if only we all listen to the voices of artists in our midst.

Mark Patrick Hederman OSB is the former Abbot of Glenstal Abbey, Co Limerick
