A Meditation on Taste

And they say that we 'moderns' have 'progressed' beyond our forefathers!

Not exactly to my personal taste, but compare

A minimalist, 'modern' dining room as can
be found in virtually any modern home.

Adorned for the glorification of God.

'Adorned' for the glorication of what?

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
