Peace by s4sayer

Peace

This is the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament at Paimpont Abbey. It attracts locals and visitors alike, seating approximately 20. During the warmer months, weekday Masses are celebrated here at 9am, thus enabling a haven of peace all day, every day.

Recently, the windows, right, were vandalised.
They have just been replaced by a young man and woman from Bâtiments de France who effect such repairs. An impressive piece of work by this talented, friendly pair.
Fave. Absolutely love this image which speaks Peace to me. So sad that the windows in this lovely old building were vandalised, but great that they have been appropriately repaired. They look to be in keeping with the style of the building as I recall it from other photos on this site

The windows are replicas of those that were damaged. The 'Youth Team' also replaced some similar windows in the Sacristy.

Certainly the windows are in keeping. Bâtiments de France is a state organisation which ensures that all listed/historic buildings have repairs that are replicas of the specific era and style. Thus the original style and or quality is in no way compromised.

What a lovely photo. Clearly whoever smashed the windows could do with experiencing real peace.

Lovely capture

Wonderful capture of the warm light...It's shameful that the chapel's windows were vandalized. Wonderful news that they were replaced.
