Design for an altar

One of my fellow Chaplains for the Order of St Lazarus, Fr Damien McCaughan of the Diocese of Down and Connor, was in Rome recently for the celebration of perpetual vows for the Sisters of the Missionaries of Divine Revelation. Cardinal Piacenza celebrated the Mass for the Sisters.
There are further pictures and details HERE.

After Mass all went in procession to the new chapel for the novices.  His Eminence brought the Blessed Sacrament up and placed it in the tabernacle for the first time.  The altar was designed by the cardinal himself (complete with damask panelling!) and built by the sisters. Rather a sweet little prayer chapel altar.
