The Special Effects of Stained Glass

A few weeks ago I made a pilgrimage to The Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Georgia to visit the Retreat Director, who will soon celebrate his fiftieth anniversary of ordination to the Priesthood. This comes in the eightieth year of his life.

While waiting to meet with him at the retreat house, I walked around the grounds and took a few pictures. As you can see, it was a sunny day. The inside of the church always benefits from the sunlight flowing through the stained glass. The walls of the church appear to be painted blue and/or gold, but they are not. The colors are strictly the reflection from the stained glass, which is simple but beautiful.

A visit to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers is worth a trip from anywhere, especially during this holy season of Lent.

In peace,
