Heavenly stained glass in the Catholic doorway! What's the story in the window?

Jacob said...

@ Safe Leif - I'm not sure, but I think it's the rich young man wondering what he has to do to find the kingdom...

Way to go! Sacred Sunday and Theme day all in one. Us too! Father Adam at Monastery Daily Photo will be happy!

Interesting. Good idea for the theme. Maybe he is looking for the doorway to the kingdom to which way is up?

I usually like older stained glass better, but this is beautiful and presented very well.

Very clever. At first I didn't realize it was a doorway and was thinking about the theme. . . . Then I saw the "light."

Well, I'm guessing the water in the background is the Sea of Galilee so this may have something to do with the feeding of the multitudes. Just guessing, though. ;-)
