Subject/Title of Window: The First Miracle in Cana

Brief Description of Subject: "On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, 'They have no wine' ... Now six stone jars were standing there ... Jesus said to them, 'Fill the jars with water.' And they filled them up to the brim. He said to them, 'Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast.' When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from ... the steward ... called the bridegroom and said to him, 'Every man serves the good wine first ... but you have kept the good wine until now.'" John 2

The bride and groom are seated at the wedding-feast. Mary, the mother, stands watching a servant do the bidding of Jesus. Water is being poured into the wine jugs. Christ's left hand blesses the wine, his right hand, as in each window, acknowledges the power of his heavenly Father being upraised with a finger pointing upward.

From "May All Who Enter This Chapel-in-the-Woods Rejoice and Be Exceeding Glad in The Love of Jesus Christ Our Lord," by Starr Commonwealth For Boys, Albion, Michigan.

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
