St. Albert the Great

Overview

The rose window form is composed in such a way that it is suggestive of flames, which represent the passion of Christ. The stained glass components of the rose window form a cross in their overlapping. Contained within these forms, are blue glass jewels, which are symbolic of the seeds of the rose. Extending horizontally from the center are planes of glass with these same jewels. These horizontal bands frame and reference the location of the tabernacle and the Corpus. The jewels are used also throughout the windows of the devotional wall, as well as on the pivoting glass doors between the Narthex and the sanctuary.
