Watching varnish dry

Peter began putting the first coat of varnish, the primer, down today, it is supposed to be clear but it has made the older wood quite dark, the new wood is unaffected, I hope it is going to dry much lighter, we have a real problem with the absence of light in the Church.

This picture shows the area of the rear wall where we removed the old "antipendium chest" which had been nailed up for years, it had a huge radiator in front of it. It took five of us to move it a few feet with difficulty. The wall is in a terrible state but we will have to live with that for a while.

Many thanks to those of you who have generously donated to our Restoration Fund. I will offer Mass for intentions next Friday in the Extraordinary Form.
