chapel

Jan 212012
 

This little chapel in Yosemite Valley really lit up an otherwise socked-in foggy damp day.  It had snowed quite wonderfully at the higher elevations the day before but here in the valley it was threatening rain.  I really love these quaintly small and homey chapels.  It’s not about large congregations of people and elaborate services.  There’s just enough room for a few hearty or curious souls to wander in in reverence.

When I first spotted this chapel on the grounds of a mission in St. Augustine, Florida I was captivated.  The greenery being allowed to grow all over the building makes me feel at home.  At first I just thought it a curiosity, another shrine to look at.  But, the longer I was there the more people entered, sat in reverence, prayed, meditated.  Our lady of le leche is a shrine to the Mother nursing her babe.  It’s alluring and a wonderful place to sit in.
