Subject/Title of Window: Jesus Blesses the Children

Brief Description of Subject: Decorative medallion at top contains a radiant white crown with three roses that range in colors from orange to dark red with a bit of blue.

This window's subject is based on Matthew 19:13-15. "Then the little children were brought to Jesus for Him to place His hands on them and pray for them; and the disciples rebuked those who brought them. But Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these '".

The drapery on all the figures is quite well done as well as the beautiful tri-radiant nimbus on the figure of Christ.

The subject of the window fits the donors -- St. Anthony School Children.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact donald20@msu.edu
