Beauty Underfoot

On the Saturday before Christmas, I got to see Mr. Mark Bryan finishing the installation of the new marble floor in the sanctuary and Lady chapel of our church.

He had waited about 32 years to do it, having helped install in 1977 the set of 3 matching marble altars, communion rail, and Stations of the Cross that had been purchased at auction from St. Joseph's Hospital in Kansas City, MO. So getting to do the floor at last is a dream come true for him.

The marble replaced old red carpet.
