Feast of the Transfiguration

Happy Feast!

The painting of the Transfiguration of Our Lord shown above is from the apse ceiling in one of the most beautiful of London suburban Catholic churches, St. Saviour's, Lewisham. I have included a wider view of the church interior below to give an impression of how it fits into the whole scheme - you will notice that the original Sanctuary is still intact and in situ.

The painting's history is quite interesting, having apparently been executed by Polish prisoners of war during WWI, so is currently quite topical.

I will try to post in more depth about this lovely church at a later date. Perhaps I will try to resume the series of posts I did last summer on London Catholic churches, and have a look at some of the more interesting ones in the suburbs.
