Bishop's Chapel, Rosary Cathedral

I have plenty of pictures, but the upload's too slow at the moment.
There are portraits of all the bishops up to Bishop Hoffman. To my way of thinking, Bishop Rehring's is the best.
The windows are exceptional.
Each sunburst on the ceiling has the IHS monogram.
The arms are those of Bishop Stritch, red lion on silver.
I'm particularly impressed with the carved panels on the vestment cabinets.

Hope you can get a more direct closeup of that first image.

Please keep it up.

The portraits ( all of them. )and the altarpiece are the first priorities when I get in there with the tripod, at a slightly less fuzzy time than 8:30 AM.
