Sgraffitto Chapel, Leonessa,
Joseph of Leonessa's feast day was during the week. He was known as the 'companion killer' because he was so zealous that he would hardly rest as he walked from town to town preaching and ministering - resulting in the collapse from exhaustion of a number of friars. His body is kept in a church in the town. The Capuchin friary remains outside and the video is of its chapel. The chapel is certainly extraordinary but it couldn't be everybody's cup of tea. I think the artwork would look better on the outside of the church. Not ugly, not bad but not exactly good either. What do people think?
