St Joseph – Houston has been transformed over the past three weeks by the installation of icons in the church’s “silo style” dome. Last night, we had the blessing of the icons — complete with priest, deacon, altar boy, and photographer climbing up to the first platform — with holy water and censer, and about 70 faithful gathered beneath chanting. Today, the scaffold workers came to disassemble; by tomorrow afternoon all will be cleared out except the dust!
The following images are listed pretty close to sequential, though you can’t hear the noises (which were extreme!). I’ll forgo comment except to say: Awaiting the appearance, board by board, of the Lord … paled in comparison to His “appearing”.
More (at least ONE) to come.
