The most sacred of places cannot be built. In human folly, we feel we can make sanctuaries. Often they are built right beside pre-existing ones. The truly sacred place has been built by the forces of nature other than man.
When a human makes a place of sacridity they also make defiance and ignorance of what is sacred. It’s not that their place is unjustified, it’s that this place is displacing the the place that was there already. It’s not a plea, but I wonder if churches could be made of uncut trees, or unbroken rock. In that nature, their nature would abide to true sacred things; rather than what we construct to be sacred.
I feel this is an a priori truth.
