Stained Glass Windows in
St. John’s Church
Stained glass is often referred to as the poor man’s Bible as it was used from the Early Middle Ages to illustrate scriptural stories and the lives of the saints to largely uneducated congregations. Interestingly, at least sixty-five fragments of glass, including some painted medieval pieces, were found during the excavations in Ardfert Cathedral in the 1990s. In more recent times, stained glass is viewed as a spectacular art form to enlighten, inspire, console and instruct those who look upon them.
By virtue of our Baptism we have been given a Christian identity and a place in the family of God. We have been blessed and filled with the graces being a follower of Christ brings. We are firmly rooted in the heart of a God who loves each of us more than we can ever imagine. What an amazing gift and privilege........Margaret Theresa Naughton.
