At St. Isidore’s in Litomysl, Minnesota (pronounced “little missile”)—a tiny Czech community in southern Minnesota—there stands a Roman Catholic church constructed of field stones the local farmers brought from the fields so they could be added to the outer walls of the church. There is nothing quite like it in southern Minnesota or anywhere else that I know of. It is a beautiful structure maintained by local families in this rural community who appreciate its loveliness and want to preserve it. Beauty makes it own rules and has its own passionate followers.
