Subject/Title of Window: Mirror of Justice

Brief Description of Subject: This clerestory window is one of 17 windows illuminating titles for the Virgin Mary found in the Litany of Loreto. The title pictured here is "Mirror of Justice."
Pictured in this window is a mirror reflecting the Scale of Justice.
The words for this title come from Malachi 4:2 (Douay-Rheims), "But unto you that fear [revere] my name, the Sun of justice [the Messiah] shall arise," and a description applied to Mary from Wisdom 7:26, "... she is ... the unspotted mirror of God's majesty."
The title "Mirror of Justice"  is bestowed on the Blessed Virgin Mary as she mirrors the majesty of her Son, the Sun of Justice.

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
