Chapel Garden

The Carmelite nuns love to adorn the sanctuary of their monastery with flowers, handmade banners, and ribbons around the candles. When I stopped for a moment of prayer yesterday, branches loaded with red roses were spread out profusely in front of the altar. (See attached photo.) The roses took my breath away, but it was the love expressed in the decorations that truly moved me.  All of the nuns’ efforts were for the One who is truly present in the consecrated hosts reserved in the tabernacle – the body, blood, soul, and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
