His latest work is the mosaics in the chapel of Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut. The mosaics were unveiled earlier this year. Fr. Rupnik works in the ancient tradition of sacred iconography. Mosaics on the walls of the chapel depict events in salvation history. A huge 28-by-44 foot mosaic of Christ is the chapel’s centerpiece.
