A place of rest, a space for silence, despite the fact that even stones are not as heavy as they were in more solid times.
In the form of loans to freedom and necessity, intensity, texture, capitals of light establish the only reference that remains: a cosmological contrast between the piles of clay and the sun with its light.
The main nave, the crypts and the chapel are simply stone boxes bathed in light, the soul, the coffin, the urn, peace, the community, they have gone before to the kingdom of light, they meet in a moment with the sky, clouds, trees.
This structure glorifies the quintessence of architecture, celebrating space and silence with the walls in light.
Santa Fuastina Kowalska
Called Apostle of Divine Mercy, she was a Polish Catholic nun. He wrote a journal with more than 600 pages in which he collected all the messages that he claimed to receive from Jesus, including the visions that He gave him about purgatory, hell and heaven.
Vision of Purgatory
"... At one point I saw myself in a place full of fire and suffering souls. They were praying fervently for themselves but it was not valid ..."
Vision of Hell
"...Today, I was carried by an angel to the depths of hell. It is a place of great torture; how imposingly large and extensive it is! ... There are caverns and torture pits where each form of agony differs from the other. .. "
Vision of Heaven
"... Today, I was in heaven in spirit, and I saw its incomparable beauties and the happiness that awaits us after death ..."
"" ... I am writing this by order of God, so that no soul can find an excuse saying that there is no hell .. What I have written is a pale shadow of the things I saw. But I noticed one thing: that most of the souls that are there are those who disbelieve that there is a hell ... "
