Another altar by my talented husband...

...and our good friend and neighbor, Steve.  This is the most elaborate of the three altars Bret has done for the Fathers of Mercy, and so he did well to employ the persnickety Mr. Cain.  This altar is in their private chapel at their Generalate in Auburn, KY, the other two being at St. Helen's Catholic Church in Glasgow, KY and Our Lady of the Caves in Horse Cave, KY.

I am told that the Fathers are delighted, and I am very happy that it has been installed just in time for their annual retreat, so that all the Fathers of Mercy will be able to see it.

Ad maiorem Dei gloriam!

  14. P.S.-I attended the all girls Mercy Academy High School in New Orleans many, many decades ago, which was run by the Sisters of Mercy. It is on longer there, but the Sisters have continued to do much building a hospital and reaching the less fortunate with health care centers throughout the city. God bless their efforts...
