Subject/Title of Window: The Good Samaritan

Brief Description of Subject: The Samaritan is shown with the wounded man on his donkey: to one side priest and Levite pass by: on the other, the thieves are fleeing. Below we see the prodigal sn returning to his father: also, a small figure of the Good Shepherd is shown in this area. Additional figures are the tongues of fire, the fleur-de-lis. The compassionate Samaritan has come to the rescue of the unfortunate man, dressed his wounds and placed hum upon his donkey to take him to the inn, represented above.

The Good Samaritan Window, given to the Glory of God and in loving memory of Jean G Hussey, portrays the Good Samaritan caring for the wounded traveler.

Directly above the head of the Good Samaritan one may see the Inn where the Traveler was taken and cared for.
Above the left shoulder of the Samaritan you may see the Priest and the Levite hurrying away from the scene. Over the right shoulder the thieves are portrayed.

In the lower portion of the window you will see the Prodigal Son returning to his Father for forgivement. In a tiny portion of this section you will find the Good Shepherd. Additional symbols in this section show the Tongues of Fire, symbolic of the Holy Spirit as well as the fleur de lis, a symbol of the Holy Trinity, and the Blessed Mother.
Connick Associates of Boston designed and executed the window. Installation was made by Fyn Studios of Benton Harbor.
The window is presented to the parish by the many, many friends of Jean G. Hussey who were grateful for and to her as well by members of her loving family.
