Old and new are always relative terms, especially when an American visits Europe. For example, in Delft in the Netherlands there is a New church built in 1420! The new church was built on the site of the old church. The site for the old church was chosen for an odd reason. The land is swampy and swamp gas could sometimes be seen burning there. Those tiny lights were not scientifically understood at that time. They were taken to be divine. So they built the church, "Where the light from Heaven was seen."

The light from Heaven shines wherever people acknowledge the Christ who said, "I am the Light of the World." It is seen wherever people are enlightened by the Divine Word which reveals that Divine Christ.
