This new chapel recreates that original one. It is just made of fabric and light. This absence of imagery and distracting elements is in order to enable the Mystery within the tabernacle to become the only point of attention, Real Presence of God for those who seek the Meetting.
Inspired by The Tent of Meeting, this “Capilla del Encuentro” wants to become a place for silence and prayer for those who want to meet their Creator.
“Now it was Moses’ way to put up the Tent of meeting outside the tent-circle, at some distance away; giving it the name of The Tent of meeting. And everyone desiring to make his prayer to the Lord went to the Tent of meeting”. (Ex 33, 7)
