Three in one

I think it is called Plexiglas.
But whatever it is made of, the transparent lectern was great for James' "Weekend Reflections."

Today we visited the convent of the Sisters of Zion in Ein Kerem.
There was the stained glass window of Prophet Elie (Elijah) reflected, next to the book of Psalms!
And looking straight down through the lectern, you can see the vaulted ceiling of the church.

One of the regular high windows came through most clearly and bright.

Don't you like the clean lines of the church, built back in the 1860s?
This photo shows the lectern and the things that were reflected in it today.
What the lady is reflecting about we will never know.
