Subject/Title of Window: Christ Dies on the Cross

Brief Description of Subject: From the Guide to the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Copyright 1958, Archdiocese of Detroit.
Here the chronological sequence of the Lord’s Passion is resumed.  In the first panel, ministering angels stand ready to heed the call of their Lord.  The second panel represents the Blessed Virgin and Mary of Cleophus as they gaze upon the crucified Christ.  The Saviour hangs upon the cross and at its foot Mary Magdalene kisses the wood that supports her dying Redeemer.  The last panel shows St. John, St. Peter, and Joseph of Arimathea who watch helplessly as the blood flows from the body of Christ.

Inscriptions: O see if there is any sorrow like unto my sorrow.

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
