A Mighty Snow Fort Is Our God
(Source; More Pictures)
Most churches in Europe are built for the ages. But not the new house of God erected in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. In fact, it'll probably melt away before May.
Ancient cathedrals are often rather chilly. But a new church built in the Carpathian Mountains in Romania -- and consecrated on Sunday -- promises to be downright frigid. It was constructed entirely out of blocks of ice.
The church comes with carved ice crucifix, statue of Mary, ice pews, ice altar, and a serious cache of ice-centered snowballs to fight off hordes of attacking Vikings*.
This is awesome. If liturgically dubious.
* Not really.
