Sedes Sapientiae

Here is a sign of a vibrant community. They have been spending a year building a small chapel for adoration. The new monstrance, donated by a friend of the community, arrived recently. The Calvert House Community at the University of Chicago is truly blessed. It is one of the places I will miss here in Chicago.

Is that really a woman holding the eucharist?

what would Rome say?

even though her title's in Latin and not in Hebrew or Greek, it looks like Holy Wisdom!

What would Rome say???!!!! I think that Rome would be very much in favor. Traditionally a statue of Mary might be holding the child Jesus, here she is cradling the true presence.

Sedes Sapientiae is a traditional name for Mary in the Litany of Loretto.

It is Jesus in his real presence who is enthroned here as "Holy Wisdom."
