The Living Rosary: A Beautiful Day for A Beautiful Prayer

Mr. Belvedere, I presume

Do you remember that rather forgettable TV sitcom? 

Anyhow, in architecture it's a term for a structure in the form of a turret or other vantage point designed to incorporate a view. Although we won't be able to access the turret from the choir loft...only our Trumpeting Angel will be allowed outside, the entry stairs do give a beautiful view of the courtyard and the prayer garden. There has also been a delightful southern breeze all through the summer which can be enjoyed from the front steps.
