  • Pazzi Chapel At Santa Croce: Architectural Analysis

    The facade is nearly square in proportion with an entablature, on which the frieze is evenly divided into smaller squares with pilasters. The cross shape of the pilasters serve not only to amplify the symmetry of the structure but also represents the cross itself, a meaningful connection to the church to which the chapel is attached, the Basilica of the Holy Cross.

The smell of the cut wood did not bring relief to me, nor did the mounds of sawdust. He took the rough, jagged edges of the sand paper and smoothed the edges and sides.

In order to share the gospel with others, we have to take a look at what God is calling us to do. Leading others consists of knowing what the Christian life looks like, sharing that with others, and staying faithful and truthful in what we say…
