The Church of Collège Notre-Dame de Jamhour

..... ....Molded to be the link with God, similar to a giant marguerite, the church of Notre-Dame de Jamhour stands at the top of the hill to greet us. Nature around dances with God’s grace and every detail accompanies us towards the Virgin Mary awaiting us.
We step inside; the church is welcoming. The canopy of Heaven, with its immobilized big waves, embraces the Light. The reflection of the stained glass draws the limit between heaven and earth. We pad in the big sanctuary and feel this immense forest in which the eyes fly upon the bluish glows where the moon, symbolizing the Virgin Mary, travels upwards. No tree, no leaf, and yet a whole garden dancing upon the light that twinkles all over and trickles within the vaults. Mary comes nearer, all blue and beautiful. The almond trees spread upwards in awe to reach the heart of the stars. The roses bow down in prayer. Jesus brushes the boughs of a cedar… In this blue ocean, the communion with God takes place. One stained glass leads us to another until we feel the red Sun of Passion: a true love story..... ....
