I saw something amazing at Amy Wellborn’s blog. She writes about a group during WWII, Citizens Committee for the Army, Navy and Air Force, which commissioned artists to make portable triptychs for use during Catholic Masses. The idea was to transform a temporary space with sacred art into an even better place for the celebration of Mass. A group of artists painted these triptychs. Amy has some photos.
They are astonishing.
Go look at others over there. Amazing.
Of course now I am think that I need something like this to flesh out my portable Mass kit with the great altar made by St. Joseph’s Apprentice (aka The Coolest Priest Gift Ever).
