St. Andrew's

I took this picture in St. Andrew's Scotland in 2000. The golf course is not far from this former church. This is how Catholics and Protestants used to dialogue with each other during and right after the revolt. Apparently, we lost this one.

In fact, what happened was the Protestants came and pulled it down brick by brick once the place was no longer "necessary." They built their houses with the stone. At least that is the story we were told when there. I believe John Knox and the early Presbyterians had something to do with this.

How sad.
