Spectacular New Addition to the Art in Our Lady of the Mountains, Georgia

(Before It's News)

Fr Charles Byrd of Our Lady of the Mountains in Jasper, Georgia, has informed me of a spectacular new edition to the art in this little church in rural Georgia. It has been sponsored by the local chapter of the Knights of Columbus. Readers will be aware of the church through a couple of articles about the long term project of alterations and the commission of art work for the interior: Beauty and Superabundance in Small Appalachian Parish.

There is a full description cross-posted by Deacon Lawrence Klimecki on the Beauty of Catholicism blog, at blog.pontifex.university

I am so pleased to see relief carving appearing in a Catholic church. This is one of the art forms that has flourished along with the general reestablishment of the iconographic tradition in the Eastern Church. Congratulations to all involved in this project, and I would like to say how gratifying it is to see the Knights of Columbus sponsoring such a wonderful art project such as this. Beauty will save the world!
