"St. Mary's Church in Norwalk, CT lost a dear, faithful parishioner. Barbara Rickman (center in the photo) died unexpectedly yesterday. This photo, taken at the St. Mary's Good Friday procession 2018, seems fitting. She was a lovely woman who loved Our Lord very much. She would have been one of those woman who stayed by Christ's side at the crucifixion. Now she will rejoice to see Him face-to-face. Please pray for her soul!" —from the Facebook page of the Society of St. Hugh of Cluny

Last week we wrote about the first half of the artist Leonard Porter’s note on the altarpiece here at St. Mary’s. This week we conclude that discussion.
Contrasting the two realms represented in the upper and lower registers of the painting, i.e. the upper heavenly realm of light and glory which results from the coming of the Savior, and the lower realm of the Old Testament where things are shadowy and awaiting perfection, the artist has included the Ark of the Covenant by making the tomb to correspond the Ark’s proportions.
