So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Gaga for Gaudi

Chile will soon boast the only Gaudi designed church outside of Spain. Due to open in 2017, the chapel of Our Lady of the Angels was begun in 1997 and when completed will be 98 feet high (30 metres).

The chapel is part of the Gaudí Cultural and Spiritual Center in the city of Rancagua, Chile. The chapel will be oriented on the Barcelona-Rancagua axis and will feature twenty stone oculi (circular openings or skylights).

Corporación Gaudí de Triana

The chapel takes design cues from the much larger Basilica de La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain, which is due to be completed in 2026. According to the architect of record, Christian Matzner, the chapel is also influenced by the work of Spanish architect Luis Bonifacio at Girona Cathedral.
