Subject/Title of Window: St. Hyacinth

Brief Description of Subject: This is the middle of five windows placed high in the sanctuary. As befitting this Church's patron saint, it is positioned directly above the altar --- the place of honor.
St. Hyacinth (1185 - 1257) was a Dominican monk. When the monastery was attacked he took the ciborium, which contained the blessed hosts, and fled, but the Virgin Mary told him to take her statue too. By a miracle ir turned weightless, and he was able to pick it up and carry it to safety. The artist has portrayed St. Hyacinth as a tonsured Dominican monk holding a ciborium in one hand, and a statue of the Virgin Mary with the Christ child in the other.
Below the word "SAINT" is a cross --- symbol for Christ and the Christian Faith.

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.
