Tabernacle of Heaven

Detail from Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, Indio, California

I hadn’t quite realized what the tableau was on the front of this tabernacle when I shot it. Only when I got it into the computer did I see all the happy faces of the apostles, a number of whom are pointing up to Heaven and one who seems to be waving at us. What Joy it must be.
