The new mosaics offer a rich tableau of salvation history though Creation, the Incarnation and Nativity, and the Resurrection and Final Judgment. The main sanctuary features ancient images that artistically communicate what will be shared when the Eucharistic Bread and the Word of God are broken. The limestone altar in the main sanctuary stands in fornt of a dazzling image of Jesus the Risen Savior, surrounded by his disciples as He pulls Adam and Eve from the depths of hell to salvation. A pelican fronts the main altar, calling to mind the powerful story that this bird will pierce its own side to feed her young, an apt metaphor for the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

In a telling example of artistry, Eve tenderly reaches for the side of Christ as if to place her fingers in the wound she finds there. It is an image echoed in the Nativity scene pictured in the smaller Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament. There, the Virgin Mother also caresses the side of her Son, who will one day be pierced for the salvation of all humanity. These images are another powerful visual reminder of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The two balls of yarn in the hands of the Blessed Virgin remind that the Holy Spirit will knit together the Son of God in the Virgin's womb, as announced by the angel Gabriel.

Visitors to the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, a more intimate setting for daily Mass and private devotions, are surrounded by images of the Magi bearing gifts for the Christ Child, the Holy Family in the manger, and the maternal grandparents of the Lord, Saint Joachim and Ann. Highlighted by a shaft of heavenly light, the tabernacle was taken from the original Sacred Heart University Chapel.
