What do you do with a missing church steeple?
The steeple of Maastricht’s main Catholic church (Basiliek van Onze Lieve Vrouw "Sterre der Zee" Maastricht ) is undergoing renovation. It was plucked off somehow a month ago, I didn’t see whether they dismantled it or lifted it off by crane or helicopter. It’s left the church looking a bit lopsided and forlorn at the holidays.
But the Church Fathers have rectified the problem, and just in time for Christmas.
