PUGIN CHAPEL - Waterford

PUGIN CHAPEL - Waterford

Stained glass window of the Wedding feast of Cana and the Healing of the paralytic man. St Mark is represented in the small piece above. This is in the Chapel in the former Presentation Convent in Waterford.

Designed by Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin, 1812 to 1852

Fans of Gothic fashions should find this man interesting. It is said that his interest in Gothic style stemmed from working as an illustrator of medieval novels and stories. In the mid-nineteenth century the Georgians dominated architecture with their pseudo-Grecian style that is referred to as neo-Classical. It led Pugin to believe that the correct form of architecture for Christian worship was the Gothic style and he commenced the Gothic revival.

Many people believed him and to this day, most practicing Christians have a great fondness for ‘traditional’ churches over other styles. Despite their size the buildings can be quite immanent and although cold they are often cosy. Many devout people like the way you can hide behind the pillars and be alone in a sacred place that has many others in it at the same time. The larger cathedrals and churches do not fare so well in this regard as they can be as cavernous as the neo-Classical or the churches built in the 1970s and 1980s.

Decorated wood and stone were the materials that Pugin blended so successfully in his designs. The light of the stained glass warms the wooden panels of the high timbered roof and walls. Here there is a sense of being in a place with strength of stone, comfort of trees and beauty of light.

There are very few examples of Pugin churches intact today. Most have been adapted for modern liturgy but this one is almost intact. The Rood Screen is still in place and the altar has not been separated to facilitate the dialogue mass. The Chair-stalls are intact and the original pipe-organ was never replaced with a Casio keyboard with a drum machine. Irish neutrality in the war of 1939-1945 also meant that a lot of our stained glass survived those terrible years.

Pugin also used the elaborate tiles made by the Minton company is Staffordshire. The tiles in the sanctuary are intact and original. The pattern in the tiles was used to give the priest, deacon and sub-deacon their positions during High Mass so they had more than just a decorative function.

The wedding at Cana
Three days later there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited. When they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the wedding was all finished, the mother of Jesus said to him, 'They have no wine'. Jesus said 'Woman, why turn to me? My hour has not come yet.' His mother said to the servants, 'Do whatever he tells you'.

There were six stone water jars standing there, meant for the ablutions that are customary among the Jews: each could hold twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, 'Fill the jars with water', and they filled them to the brim. 'Draw some out now' he told them 'and take it to the steward.' They did this; the steward tasted the water, and it had turned into wine. Having no idea where it came from - only the servants who had drawn the water knew - the steward called the bridegroom and said; 'People generally serve the best wine first, and keep the cheaper sort till the guests have had plenty to drink; but you have kept the best wine till now'.

This was the first of the signs given by Jesus: it was given at Cana in Galilee. He let his glory be seen, and his disciples believed in him. After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and the brothers, but they stayed there only a few days.

Cure of a paralytic
When he returned to Capernaum some time later, word went round that he was back; and so many people collected that there was no room left, even in front of the door. He was preaching the word to them when some people came bringing him a paralytic carried by four men, but as the crowd made it impossible to get the man to him, they stripped the roof over the place where Jesus was; and when they had made an opening, they lowered the stretcher on which the paralytic lay.

Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, 'My child, your sins are forgiven'. Now some scribes were sitting there, and they thought to themselves, 'How can this man talk like that? He is blaspheming. Who can forgive sins but God?' Jesus, inwardly aware that this was what they were thinking, said to them, 'Why do you have these thoughts in your hearts? Which of these is easier: to say to the paralytic, "Your sins are forgiven" or to say, "Get up, pick up your stretcher and walk"? But to prove to you that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,' - he said to the paralytic - I order you: get up, pick up your stretcher, and go off home.'

And the man got up, picked up his stretcher at once and walked out in front of everyone, so that they were all astounded and praised God saying, 'We have never seen a
