"Our churches are to the angels the borderland between heaven and earth" (Liturgical Year)

"Here may the burdens of sinners be undone, and the faithful who have fallen be restored to grace." (Preface)

"Oh, how awful is this place! Truly it is naught else by the house of God, and the gate of heaven." (Antiphon)

"Terrible is this place: it is the house of God, and the gate of heaven; and shall be called the court of God." (Introit)

"Thou, O Lord, hast chosen this house, that thy name may be invoked in it: that it may be a house of prayer and supplication for thy people." (Antiphon)

"And [Jesus] said to them, "It is written: 'My house shall be a house of prayer'..." (Taken from Mt. 21:13)

"Holiness becometh the house of God: let us adore therein Christ her Spouse." (Invitatory)

"Holiness becometh thy house, O Lord, unto length of days." (Antiphon)

"Can. 1214 The term church means a sacred building intended for divine worship, to which the faithful have right of access for the exercise, especially the public exercise, of divine worship." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 1219 All acts of divine worship may be carried out in a church which has been lawfully dedicated or blessed, without prejudice to parochial rights." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 1180 No church can be endowed with the title of basilica except by apostolic grant or immemorial custom; the privileges [of that title] are indicated by either of these sources." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 1497 § 2 [Temporal goods] are called sacred if with consecration or blessing they are destined for divine cult; [they are called] precious if they are of notable value by reason of art, history, or material." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 1263 § 1 There can be a distinct place in the church for magistrates because of their dignity and grade according to the norm of liturgical law. § 2 Without the express consent of the local Ordinary, none of the faithful shall have a place reserved in the church for them; the Ordinary shall not give this consent unless the convenience of the other faithful is sufficiently considered. § 3 Whenever this grant is made there is a tacit condition that the Ordinary can, for a just cause, revoke the concession, notwithstanding whatever length of time." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house, and the place where Thy glory dwelleth.' (Ps. xxv. 8) May this word remain with us as... Thy house, O God, is our church, unspeakably beautiful with the splendor of the divine mysteries. Compared with her, what was the tabernacle that sheltered the Ark of the Covenant of Sinai? And yet the thought of it filled the heart of David in the desert, and made him faint like the stag panting after the fountains of water. Let us learn from our fathers, who lived in the ages of expectation, how to love the courts of the Lord." (Liturgical Year)

"All should come to our churches and there be taught the truth of the Catholic faith, sing the praises of God, be enriched with benediction of the Blessed Sacrament given by the priest and be strengthened with help from heaven against the adversities of this life. Let all try to learn those prayers which are recited at vespers and fill their souls with their meaning. When deeply penetrated by these prayers, they will experience what St. Augustine said about himself: 'How much did I weep during hymns and verses, greatly moved at the sweet singing of thy Church. Their sound would penetrate my ears and their truth melt my heart, sentiments of piety would well up, tears would flow and that was good for me.'" (Pope Pius XII, "Mediator Dei", 1947)

"Strive then, Venerable Brethren, with your customary devoted care so the churches, which the faith and piety of Christian peoples have built in the course of centuries for the purpose of singing a perpetual hymn of glory to God almighty and of providing a worthy abode for our Redeemer concealed beneath the Eucharistic species, may be entirely at the disposal of greater numbers of the faithful who, called to the feet of their Savior, hearken to His most consoling invitation, 'Come to Me all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will refresh you.' Let your churches be the house of God where all who enter to implore blessings rejoice in obtaining whatever they ask and find there heavenly consolation." (Pope Pius XII, "Mediator Dei", 1947)

"Our churches are holy because they belong to God, and on account of the celebration of the holy Sacrifice therein, and the prayer and praise offered to the divine Guest who dwells there. More truly than the figurative tabernacle or the ancient temple, they are separated solemnly and for ever by their dedication from all the dwellings of men, and exalted far above all earthly palaces. Still notwithstanding the magnificent rites performed within them on the day they were consecrated to God, notwithstanding the holy oil with which their walls remain for ever impregnated, they themselves are devoid of feeling and life. What else, then, can be meant, but that the solemn function of the dedication, and the annual feast that commemorates it, do not point merely to the material building, but rise to living and more sublime realities? The principal glory of the noble edifice will be to symbolize those great realities. Under the shelter of its roof the human race will be initiated into ineffable secrets, the mystery whereof will be consummated in another world in the noonday light of heaven." (Liturgical Year)

"Let us...fight for our people and our sanctuary!" (1MACC 3:43)
