What do you do with a missing church steeple?

DSC09223The 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.

The Dutch are still a delight sometimes…
