    • Chapel of Milagrosa with a service of initiation 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      A young woman enterring the convent as a novitiate. The mosaic shows Natives worshipping at the shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
    • Close up of the altar/table 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      The altar/table reflects the impact of the liturgical movement, even prior to Vatican II.
    • El Altillo 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      Enrique de Mora and Felix Candela, architects. The full title for the chapel is "the Capilla de los Missionaros del Espirito Santo." 1956-58.
    • El Altillo 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      The roof is obviously the contribution of Candella.
    • Façade of El Atillo 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      A large concrete cross supports the apex of the roof at the façade of the church.
    • Façade with stained glass and mosaic above entry doors 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
    • Iglesia de la Virgin Milagrosa 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      Fernando Lopez and Felix Candela, architects. Mexico District Federale, 1954.
    • Liturgical center 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      The walls of stained glass offer an abstraction alluding to the missionaries of the Holy Spirit.
    • Nave and apse 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      Felix Candela is famous for his ability to use complex concrete forms to support his structures.
    • Nave and apse 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      The light fixtures on the side pillars are a nice touch while the triangle encompassing the apse lacks the fluidity of the pillars and "vaulting."
    • Side aisle with pillars and arches 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      Another examples of the complex geomerty of Candela's supporting pillars.
    • Side walls moving towards the apex of the "east" wall 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      Does "el Atillo" that is "the hillock" refer the the place or the shape?
