28th October SS. Simon and Jude

'Saints Simon and Jude Converting the People'
13th century stained glass panel from Chartres Cathedral.
Pasted Graphic


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.
