Chapel Windows

The chapel is located just past the left sanctuary, past the statue of the Blessed Mother. A daily mass altar is located here.

The final chapter of Luke’s Gospel is depicted here in the Supper at Emmaus, which occurred in the evening of Christ’s resurrection.

Now that very day two of them were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred. And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him. As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther. But they urged him, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them. And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight.
Luke 24:13-16,28-31


The Immaculate Virgin Mary, standing on a globe and crushing a serpent with her foot. The serpent has an apple in its mouth, representing the deception of Eve that created our original sin. In the Garden of Eden after the fall, the Virgin Mary is considered the new Eve.

 

 

 

 

 


This window depicts the sacrifice of Isaac by his father, Abraham.

Then God said: “Take your son Isaac, your only one, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah. There you shall offer him up as a holocaust on a height that I will point out to you.” When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. Next he tied up his son Isaac, and put him on top of the wood on the altar. Then he reached out and took the knife to slaughter his son. But the LORD’S messenger called to him from heaven, “Abraham, Abraham!” “Yes, Lord,” he answered. “Do not lay your hand on the boy,” said the messenger. “Do not do the least thing to him. I know now how devoted you are to God, since you did not withhold from me your own beloved son.” As Abraham looked about, he spied a ram caught by its horns in the thicket. So he went and took the ram and offered it up as a holocaust in place of his son.
Genesis 22:2,9-13
