From the inside

Our Lady of Perpetual Help

Our Lady of Perpetual Help windowsWe've posted quite a few pictures taken at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, a beautiful Catholic parish built in 1909. Yesterday, I happened to pass by when the front doors were open. I stopped and met Father Joseph, who welcomed me to take some pictures inside as soon as Mass ended.

The inside was as beautiful and peaceful as the outside. What I was most curious about was what the large circular stained glass window in the front looked like from the inside. (Click here to see the window from the outside.) I was disappointed to find that, at least with yesterday's overcast skies, no light at all shone through from that side. Instead, these windows on the side walls were nicely lit.
