Awe Inspiring Stained Glass

When light shines through stained glass windows, they can lift our souls up from our own narrow miserable awareness into His Presence as we contemplate them.

Light is more powerful than darkness and beautiful colourful glass works of art can touch us with a mystical, heavenly light that moves our hearts and souls towards God.

No wonder stained glass windows were crafted in the Middle Ages as a way of teaching illiterate parishioners the basic Christian message and inspiring them to live holy, prayerful lives.
