28th October SS. Simon and Jude
13th century stained glass panel from Chartres Cathedral.
For people who could not read or write, stained glass
became the narrative of the medieval world. The daylight
shining through the glass seemed to illuminate the word of God,
as if He was speaking to his people through these images.
