Behold the “Great Renewal”…
“Holy Spirit” Chapel at University of California
There is only one word to describe this “Catholic” chapel at Berkeley’s University of California campus: HELL. Something that you may have dreamed about in your worst nightmares is stark reality at the “Holy Spirit” Chapel of Newman Hall, the arch-liberal university’s Novus Ordo community.
The perpetrators of this infernal dungeon are Stephen De Staebler (sculptures) and Mario J. Ciampi with Richard L. Jorasch (architectural design). The work was commissioned — you guessed it — in the latter half of the 1960s, when the new religion of Vatican II began to be implemented.
