Recently while in New Orleans, for an art show, I had the opportunity to
visit one of my favorite churches.

St. Mary's Assumption

This beautiful church is in the lower Garden District.
The architectural style is Baroque Revial - Late Victorian
and is simply breathtaking.

The Tabernacle is surrounded by prayerful
angels, kneeling at the dwelling place for the devine presence.

There is great comfort to those who enter. 

I love this altar
devoted to Mother of Perpetual Help a 15th century Byzantine icon. 

In my Father's house are many rooms;
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I am going there to prepare a place for you.
john 14:2

This has been a very sad week for our community. 
The death of Father Ernie Hyndman
 was received with such sadness.
He will be missed by his family, his parish and his friends.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding
Proverbs 3:5

Thanks for letting me share my thoughts and feelings.
