A Prayer for the Provisional Feast day of Ralph Adams Cram, Richard Upjohn, and John LaFarge

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Gracious God, we offer thanks for the vision of Ralph Adams Cram, John LaFarge and Richard Upjohn, whose harmonious revival of the Gothic enriched our churches with a sacramental understanding of reality in the face of secular materialism; and we pray that we may honor thy gifts of the beauty of holiness given through them, for the glory of Jesus Christ; who livest and reignest with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

Too bad there is no feast day for the original archietects, stained glass window makes, and laborers who built the genuine Gothic cathedrals.

We could sure use them today.  Most of the current crop of new churches are ghastly things.  The design for the new St. Peter’s Anglican in Tallahassee is a noteworthy exception.  God grant that they get it built.
