Eastern churches
What Holy Ghost, Philadelphia should look like (actually this is a new Orthodox church in Slovakia)
The verse over the arch is the first one of the Magnificat from Luke 1:

My soul doth magnify the Lord: and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
And what it really looks like
It once resembled the first picture but was the victim of a 1950s modernization thanks to the infamous Nicholas Elko. Even an aircraft hangar, which both these buildings are architecturally inside, can be made into a dwelling-place meet for Our Lord.

From Cælum et terra
Iconography by Daniel Nichols
