Subject/Title of Window: Sacred Heart of Jesus

Brief Description of Subject: Devotion to the Sacred Heart dates to the early 12th Century and has become one of the most widespread devotions in the Catholic Faith.

In the center of this epistle side transept rose is Christ dressed in red and white, gesturing upwards with His right hand and touching His exposed Sacred Heart with his left hand.

The exposed Sacred Heart is pictured as a flaming heart, surrounded by the Crown of Thorns, dripping blood and topped with a crucifix. The entire image is bathed in an aura of light.

Traditionally, as in this Church, The Sacred Heart window is opposite the Immaculate Heart window.

According to archival material, this window was donated by the St. Anthony Society.

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.
