Santuary for the Beatification

Both Damian Thompson and Fr Z show the "sanctuary" for the Newman beatification in Birmingham. Fr Z is running a poll, both are not 100% enthusiastic, that goes without saying.
I just wish the designer had read "Spirit of the Liturgy".

I am utterly opposed to high profile events like this - they serve merely to degrade the Sacred Liturgy, and even, I may say, the Pope himself. Why could this not have been done in the Birmingham Oratory?

I too don't like Holy Mass celebrated in a stadium like setting and wouldn't attend for that reason.
The "sanctuary" is awful.

Good to see the 'reform of the reform' is making progress.

What a horrible construction. I agree with Patricius. A modest event in the Birmingham Oratory would have been preferable and suitably dignified.
