Aug 25 – New Windows

Last week new windows were installed in the east wall of our church, behind the altar. Today the windows were cleaned to complete the installation process. One of the brothers commented that “the heavens were opened” with the replacement of the 40 year old Plexiglas that had become foggy and discolored over the years. The amount of natural light in the sanctuary is noticeably improved.

from Rule of St. BenedictChapter 19. The Discipline of Psalmody

We believe that the divine presence is everywhere and that in every place the eyes of the Lord are watching the good and the wicked (Prov 15:3). But beyond the least doubt we should believe this to be especially true when we celebrate the divine office.
