Good Friday

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 10 April 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.

- John 19:25

Indeed a beautiful capture of light, color and the powerful meaning behind this scene in glass.
I like how you captured this without any distraction.
Thanks for your visit, I replied with what I thought you were referring to.

I love stained glasses. Colors are always wonderful. In some churches in France, some of them stil remain from the Middle-Ages. Incredibly solid. Great picture Steven. Have a nice Easter week-end.

This is so beautiful ... and so rich. I too posted stained glass, but more modern than yours because our church is only 27 years old.
Easter blessings to you and your loved ones.
