Somewhat reluctantly back in the U.S. Got home Thursday after a smooth but still arduous flight. Jet lag a lot better today than it was yesterday when I was not fit to be around man, beast, or a beer. It will take a few weeks to get my new room in shape. Talk with provincial in two weeks about the next step. Several interesting possibilities.
The photos are from the sacristies of both the Cathedral of St. Nicholas and the Franciscan Church of the Annunciation, both in LJ approximately 500 yards apart.
Thuribles against a wall in the Cathedral.
Chalice and patens at the ready for Mass.
Partial view of a chandelier.
The light in the Franciscan church was perfect at 11 AM. By 11:30 there was no further direct light on the altar.
Standing at the entrance to the sacristy. Had to tone the on the flowers down just a little bit.
The pulpit and portion of the choir loft.
