A video, Sacred Space: The Architecture and Space of a Byzantine Church follows:



"Blessed Lord Jesus, Who didst love Thy Father's House, help us to love Thy service and Thy Church: That as Solomon was taught to build and adorn the temple of the Lord, so we, to whom has been committed here the care of Thy Altar and Sanctuary, may perform our holy work, with pure hands and hearts of fervent love. For Thine own mercy's sake. Amen." (Author Unknown)
