Mass before pews


I wish I could get this close during Mass.

That's so beautiful, on several levels.

That is interesting. My wife and I were married in the Mission Solano. There were no pews or benches. Candidly, my first time in their seemed so odd to have such and open area.

Perhaps you can have a post titled "Mass without pews". I have plenty of photo's of Mass celebrated on Iwo Jima or Khe Sahn.

Thanks for the idea, Newguy. I'll do it.

Dymphna -

There is a interesting painting by Bradley Schmehl that depicts Father Corby giving general absolution to members of the Irish brigade at Gettysburg. I'm sure you can find an image on line. It's a clear reminder of our need for our faith and the sacraments.
