Cologne's Basilica offers a disco display of lights
In January 2007, the Catholic Hierarchy in Cologne, allowed a disco company to use the Basilica of the Holy Apostles to produce a psychedelic display of lights for three days. The music that played during the spectacles was rock 'n' roll, electronic and New Age.
The event was called The Civilization of Love, and one of the nights was titled "Mass for Unbelievers."
Cardinal Joachim Meisner, Archbishop of Cologne, was probably pleased with this new sign of adaptation to the modern world according to Vatican II.
