Nativity Window

Christmas 2012 - Nativity Window

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God.

All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.

What came to be through him was life,
and this light was the light
of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
...

And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us
and we saw his glory,
the glory of the Father's only Son,
full of grace and truth.

From his fullness we have all received,
grace in place of grace, ...

No one has ever seen God.

The only Son, God,
who is at the Father's side,
has revealed him.

[John 1:1-5,14,16,18]

Baptism of the Lord by John - Window
Baptism of the Lord by John

  Baptism of the Lord

Later Jesus, coming from Galilee
appeared before John at the Jordan
to be baptized by him.

John tried to reuse him with the protest,
"I should be baptized by you,
yet you come to me!"

Jesus answered:
"Give in for now.
  We must do this
  if we would fulfill all of God's demands."

So John gave in.

After Jesus was baptized,
he came directly out of the water.

Suddenly the sky opened
and he saw the Spirit of God
descend like a dove and hover over him.

With that, a voice from the heavens said,

"This my beloved Son.
My favor rests on him.",

[Matthew 3:13-17]

Penticost Window

    Pentecost Sequence

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

And from Thy celestial home
Shed a ray of light divine!

Come Father of the poor!

Come source of all our store!

Come within our bosoms shine!

Thou, of comforters the best;
Thou, the soul's most welcome guest;
Sweet refreshment here below;
In our labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat,
Solace in the midst of woe.

O most blessed Light divine
Shine within these hearts of Thine.

And our inmost being fill!

Where you are not, man has naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
Nothing free from taint of ill.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour Thy dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away:
Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful who adore
And confess you, evermore
In your sev'nfold gift descend;
Give them virtue's sure reward;
Give them Thy salvation, Lord;
Give them joys that never end.

Amen. Alleluia !

[Pentecost Mass]
