Thursday Doors: Madonna Chapel

madonna-chapel-1madonna-chapel-2madonna-chapel-3

A small, white painted door for a small, white painted chapel in Bayou Goula, Louisiana – the story goes that a poor sugar farmer with a gravely ill son prayed to the Blessed Virgin to save his child’s life, promising to build a chapel in her honour if the boy lived.

The resulting chapel, built in the early 1900s, is only eight foot square – but at least the farmer kept his promise!  🙂
