CONSTRCTN Vol. XVI, #4 Limited, but Heartening

Memories, like birds, fleeting.  One must grasp and hold in heart's hands.

Slim week in terms of photos, but here's a look at what's been happening in chapel.  The support for the background in the sanctuary (looks like a series of pipes (?)) on which the large forked crucifix will hang.  Looking at the front of the chapel building facing the succor field, you will see the silhouette of that cross.  More about that later.  The other photo gives you an hint of what the west wall of the chapel will look like, i.e. windows, so what what the second photo gives you is a tantalizing look at the frames.  One's imagination could go wild with this (but exercise due control, please).  By the way, the closing of that open area onto the chapel floor makes it impossible to move large vehicular pieces of equipment back onto the floor of the chapel.  Progress!  You can see in both photos that the walls are painted already.  Things seem to be accomplished in strange order, night war (German)?


The top row of the window frames, blogger noticed this morning, has been filled with what looks like a sort of smokey glass--that was from a distance, however.

Blogger regrets not being able to show you more, but the week has been hectic.  The other area of interest has that has also enjoyed some progress, blogger did not have time to investigate and report to you.  It happens.

Next week, vacation, really.  The first in three years for a few of us, so we are excited.  Blogger will include a short report on her return.  Needless to say, there will be no posting next week.  Dry your eyes, be good, and pray for us as we do for you.  Bon voyage to us!
