First came the extension, three arches and massive columns with the heavy capitals. Second, the beautiful gold lamp Third, the delicate and exquisite altars, and now the fourteen pictures. "Jesus Condemned to Death" "Jesus made to hear the Cross" "Jeriis falls the First Time" "Meeting His afflicted Mother" "Simon the Syreuian" "To carry the Cross" "Veronica wipes the Face of Jesus" "Jesus falls the second time beneath the Cross" "Meets the Women of Jerusalem" 'Jesus falls the Third Time" "Jesus Stripped of His Garments" "His Crucifixion" "Jesus Dead on the Cross" "He is taken down from the Cross" "He is laid in the Sepulcher" have been removed and in their place is fourteen statutes or groups in relief representing the same scenes in the life of Jesus. They ire placed in beautiful frames of white and gold exactly where the pictures were and are in delicate harmony with the three altars. Fr. Mullen deserves great credit for the many improvements and when later on he succeeds in hav ing the interior frescoed in harmo ny with the other appointments of the church it will be hard for one to find adjectives in the English languege to describe the Cat hi lie house of worship in this city.
