Another addition to the church challenge , and one which I was fortunate enough to visit earlier this month, is the Mariaczka Basilica on the town square in Krakow. The Central Europeans love color in their churches, and the Mariaczka is a perfect example. The whole church is a blaze of hues that, instead of becoming garish, unite in pleasant harmony. You can see this most clearly in the sanctuary, whose altar, ceiling, and choir stalls are shown below.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before the clock above hits zero.

First Things is proud to be a reader-supported enterprise, and the Spring Campaign is one of only two major reader giving drives each year. It ends on June 30 at 11:59 p.m.

Your gift will fortify First Things to speak boldly on behalf of religious voices in the public square ahead of a pivotal season for our nation and the church.

Please give now.
