An interesting take on it, DDW.


I didn't add "Beautiful" but only because what you wrote still had me thinking so hard even then. This piece was balm itself, beautifully explored and presented, for which I am grateful.

Thank you Carol. Funny, these homilies or sermons come as balm to me too.

BTW-I took the photos inside the church at St. Thomas More after a private baptism last Saturday. I used the same text as the Sunday gospel, just a shorter version of it. It was actually at the baptism that the homily came to me and I just worked on it the rest of the afternoon bit by bit.


It's wonderful. I am still puzzling out that last photo, tho'.. Is that the Cross raised up to a window?

Deacon DW

It's looking up, at an angle from the back of the cross (a resurrection style cross), which is suspended from the ceiling. The area above the cross is an a large enclosed skylight that allows natural light to shine down on the altar area.
