2 October 2, 2016 The SJV Altar See if you can find these thirteen words that pertain to an altar or items specific to the St. John Vianney altar design. Can you find the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit that are represented by the doves on the front of the altar? The doves are surrounding a chalice and host which represent the sacrifice of the Mass which Christ urged us to repeat in His memory. On the host are the letters IHS a time honored symbol of Christ taken from the first, middle and last letters of His name in Greek. Altars in permanent churches often have relics imbedded in or underneath them. Good luck.
