TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
O ne of the most unusual Catholic churches in the world is in Amsterdam: Our Lord in the A c, or as the locals say, Ons Lieve Heer op Solder. What looks like a beau ful narrow brick mansion alongside a canal is a clever disguise for a very wellpreserved seventeenthcentury home and a secret church. During the Reforma on, the Netherlands was divided into Protestant Holland and the Spanish Netherlands, now known as Belgium, a Catholic stronghold. Protestant reformers seized all the Catholic parishes in Holland and deCatholicized them. New laws forbade the celebra on of the Mass in public. St. Nicholas Church was renamed Old Church by the new owners, and the dispossessed Catholics got to work hiding St. Nicholas Parish in the upper floors of this mansion. Other Catholics did the same thing, but this is the only hidden church that survives today. Sunday Mass is s ll celebrated here. Its a beau ful hideaway, with nothing spared in regard to marble, gilding, a pipe organ, and classic Dutch pain ng. A few steps away, the Old Church, begun in 1250, stands emp ed of the statues and carvings of its Catholic days, its windows replaced by plain glass. The new tenants gave up when it came to the ceiling, which is s ll painted with saints, biblical scenes, and merchant ships. The Dutch reformers were tolerant sorts, and as long as the Catholics kept out of sight, they were out of mind. Catholicism was at last tolerated in Holland a er 1853, but in 1924 when the Interna onal Eucharis c Congress was held in Amsterdam, processions of Catholics were s ll forbidden in the streets. Today, Roman Catholics are about 19 percent of the popula on, and theres no need for any of them to hide in the a c. Rev. James Field, Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.
