Upon entering the chapel when the altar lights are on, the eye is drawn to the heights where the lights shine through the small pink marble pillars and the brass lattice work at the top.  This directs the gaze to the statue which adorns the tip of the dome, Jesus, the Light of the World.  This high vaulted dome creates a canopy over the golden tabernacle placed in the center of the white marble altar, signifying the rightful place for the King of Kings dwelling within it.  His place in the center expresses the Reality – Jesus, center of our Lives!
