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.
The Lord is our Shepherd because no matter what darkness befalls us He is there. When others treat us badly hurting our minds, bodies and souls the Lord is there ready to pick us up. He is there willing and able to hold our broken hearts in His hand. He is the one person we can rely on no matter what happens or who else persecutes us. He is our one true and forever friend. .......Margaret Theresa Naughton.
