The window, it seems, is unbreakable. It would be just my style to break it! I don’t know how many hundreds of pounds it is at an inch think (and 6×7 feet high and wide) and made, it seem, from a form of polycarbonate. It think the only way to get it up is to make the frame around it and then use a pully system to lift it up in place. What a fright! This is the window which goes above the ad orientem (literally) altar with gradines and fixed tabernacle. I’m going to try to keep the altar about 20″ from the window so that I can more easily take care of the linens and keep the window sparkling. I really want to make the chapel somehow appropriate, somehow tolerated by Saint Joseph for the presence of his Son in the Most Blessed Sacrament. We’re getting closer to the bishop coming out to consecrate the chapel according to Canon Law, as well as to bless the hermitage and to offer the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. What an honor!
UPDATE: A Hail Mary, please. This might not be so easy. The gusts of wind today seem to be up to gale force. There is a blizzard of leaves and pine needles and little branches falling almost horizontally. Yikes!
