Sedes Sapientiae

One of the highlights of today was the blessing and the opening of the new Sedes Sapientiae Adoration Chapel at Calvert House.
Bishop Perry, the Episcopal Vicar for our region was the presider. Fr. Andrew Apostoli, CFR was one of the concelebrants along with Fr. Mike Yakaitis and myself. The chapel is in honor of the Servant of God Fulton Sheen. Members of his family were there. Fr. Apostoli is the procura for the cause of Fulton Sheen.

I had lunch with Fr. Bruce Harbert, the executive Director ICEL, along with Fr. Mike, Melissa, and fellow blogger Aristotle Esguerra. The discussion was fascinating and insightful as we got an inside look into the complexities of translating of the Sacramentary.

Sedes Sapientiae = Seat of Wisdom. A title of Mary listed in the Litany of Loreto.

Seat of Wisdom....the chapel was beautiful at Easter, and it's nice to see it finished. It's lovely, and I'm sure Fr. Mike, Betty, Kathy and the gang at Calvert House, especially Clara (diet coke enthusiast) are very pleased!

is this a chapel for continuous adoration with a single individual in attendance? (from the kneeler, it looks like its set up for the focus of one person)

can the image be used to impart a blessing?
