Sometimes, on breaks from work, I like to take the opportunity and go for a walk outside. As I walk, I sometimes make my way to the St. Basil Chapel at the University of St. Thomas that is just a few blocks away. Although the chapel doesn’t have the warm atmosphere and lighting in the inside that I would prefer for a chapel, I do like and appreciate its modern architectural elements inside and out.
From just a few meters away, one can see the full white entrance to the chapel. For me, the entrance is like a veil that has been cut – an invitation being held open by Jesus Christ. Narrow is the entrance and short is the time remaining to enter (as maybe the veil indicates), but the opportunity into the Kingdom of God is still open!
