Lovely 19th-century depiction of St Peter holding the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and a preaching Cross. This window is in the crypt of chapel of the Upper Basilica in Lourdes, and today is the feast of St Leo the Great, who was a 5th-century successor of St Peter as Bishop of Rome and Vicar of Christ.

St Peter in Lourdes



St. Martin's feast (11 November), also known as "Martinmas" in Europe arrives in autumn, the beginning of the wine harvest. This was also the time of slaughter of the stock for winter meat. His images are usually depicted with a goose, symbolizing that Martinmas was the last festive meal before Advent, because in France in the Middle Ages, the strict 40 day Advent fast (called Quadragesima Sancti Martini or Forty Days' Fast of Saint Martin's) began the next day. So in past centuries November 11 was celebrated as a thanksgiving day. Thus it was the custom to have "St. Martin's goose" and taste the new wine ("Saint Martin's Wine") on his feast day. A quick spell of warm weather around his feast day (usually termed "Indian Summer" in the US) is known as "St. Martin's Little Summer" in Europe. This stained glass window of the saint, shown cutting his cloak in half to share it with a beggar, is from the west window of St Alban's Cathedral and was designed by Sir Ninian Comper.

Christ being baptised



This interesting window in Burgos Cathedral conflates the two epiphanies of the Baptism, when the Spirit descends on Christ in the form of a dove and the Father reveals Him to be His beloved Son, and the Adoration of the Magi, when the wise men from the east come to Bethlehem and adore the infant Christ. This conflation is based on the Magnificat antiphon for the feast of the Epiphany which says: "Three wonders mark this day we celebrate: today the star led the Magi to the manger; today water was changed into wine at the wedding feast; today Christ desired to be baptized by John in the river Jordan to bring us salvation, alleluia". In a sense, this conflation has been separated by the reformed liturgy because last week's feast of the Epiphany only celebrates the arrival of the Magi, and this Sunday we celebrate the feast of the Baptism. The wedding at Cana has no separate feast.

Epiphany at the Jordan



"And by a miracle divine, The water reddened into wine! He spoke the word, and forth it flowed In streams that nature ne'er bestowed" - from the Office hymn for the Epiphany, translated by John Mason Neale. Three events are traditionally celebrated at the Epiphany: the adoration of the Magi, the Baptism of Christ, and his first miracle at Cana (John 2:1-11). This window by Webb in St Alban's Cathedral depicts the latter.

The Miracle at Cana



This window, from Glastonbury parish church, nicely leads us from Sunday's Gospel of the miracle at Cana (shown on the left) to this Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity, which begins today. This week, we ask the Lord, who alone is our Good Shepherd (shown in the middle), to lead His flock into unity, and we ask him to heal us (shown on the right) of whatever keeps us Christians divided. By His grace and the working of His Holy Spirit, may all the baptised be one as the Son and the Spirit are one with God the Father.

Do whatever He tells you



"One of the basic characteristics of a shepherd must be to love the people entrusted to him, even as he loves Christ whom he serves. “Feed my sheep”, says Christ to Peter, and now, at this moment, he says it to me as well. Feeding means loving, and loving also means being ready to suffer. Loving means giving the sheep what is truly good, the nourishment of God’s truth, of God’s word, the nourishment of his presence, which he gives us in the Blessed Sacrament... Here I want to add something: both the image of the shepherd and that of the fisherman issue an explicit call to unity. “I have other sheep that are not of this fold; I must lead them too, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd” (Jn 10:16); these are the words of Jesus at the end of his discourse on the Good Shepherd." - Pope Benedict XVI This week is the Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity.

"O God, by the preaching of the blessed Apostle Paul you have taught the whole world.

"Now we can see how the last summoning words of the Lord appropriately apply to Saint Joseph: “Enter into the joy of your Lord.” In fact, although the joy of eternal happiness enters into the soul of a man, the Lord preferred to say to Joseph: “Enter into joy.” His intention was that the words should have a hidden spiritual meaning for us. They convey not only that this holy man possesses an inward joy, but also that it surrounds him and engulfs him like an infinite abyss." - From a sermon by St Bernardine of Siena. 19 March is the Solemnity of St Joseph, and this window by Hardman is in the church of Our Lady and the English Martyrs in Cambridge.

He carried out this vocation with complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying: “Good and faithful servant enter into the joy of your Lord.”" - From a sermon by Saint Bernardine of Siena 19 March is the Solemnity of St Joseph, and this detail of the saint is by Sir Ninian Comper, from the Lady Chapel of Downside Abbey.

"Loving Shepherd of Thy sheep, Keep Thy lamb, in safety keep; Nothing can Thy power withstand, None can pluck me from Thy hand. Loving Savior, Thou didst give Thine own life that we might live, And the hands outstretched to bless Bear the cruel nails’ impress. I would praise Thee every day, Gladly all Thy will obey, Like Thy blessèd ones above Happy in Thy precious love. Loving Shepherd, ever near, Teach Thy lamb Thy voice to hear, Suffer not my steps to stray From the straight and narrow way. Where Thou leadest I would go, Walking in Thy steps below, Till before my Father’s throne I shall know as I am known." Today, the 4th Sunday of Easter, is Good Shepherd Sunday, and this stained glass window is from All Saints church in Honington.

Loving Shepherd of Thy sheep



"Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!" And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all therein, saying, "To him who sits upon the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might for ever and ever!" And the four living creatures said, "Amen!" and the elders fell down and worshipped." - Revelation 5:11-14. This rose window is in the north transept of Downside Abbey church in Somerset.

An interesting but complex allegorical 18th-century fresco adorns the choir of the Dominican church of San Esteban in Salamanca. In this detail, we see a personification of the Mother Church carrying the Eucharist, the Cross, the Gospel of Matthew, and the book of the Elect. She is robed, as usual, in pontifical vesture, and crowned with the papal tiara. Next to her is St Thomas Aquinas, the Universal Doctor of the Church.

Agape is one of the four Greek loves, and it is now generally understood to refer to God's unconditional love for humankind. And it is a love in which we share, and it is linked to eros. As Pope Benedict XVI explains: "Yet eros and agape—ascending love and descending love—can never be completely separated. The more the two, in their different aspects, find a proper unity in the one reality of love, the more the true nature of love in general is realized. Even if eros is at first mainly covetous and ascending, a fascination for the great promise of happiness, in drawing near to the other, it is less and less concerned with itself, increasingly seeks the happiness of the other, is concerned more and more with the beloved, bestows itself and wants to “be there for” the other. The element of agape thus enters into this love, for otherwise eros is impoverished and even loses its own nature. On the other hand, man cannot live by oblative, descending love alone. He cannot always give, he must also receive. Anyone who wishes to give love must also receive love as a gift. Certainly, as the Lord tells us, one can become a source from which rivers of living water flow (cf. Jn 7:37-38). Yet to become such a source, one must constantly drink anew from the original source, which is Jesus Christ, from whose pierced heart flows the love of God (cf. Jn 19:34)." This painting of St Bernard of Clairvaux embracing the Crucified One is in the church of San Bernardo in Rome.

"Jesus came to the Samaritan town called Sychar, near the land that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well is there and Jesus, tired by the journey, sat straight down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, ‘Give me a drink.’ His disciples had gone into the town to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to him, ‘What? You are a Jew and you ask me, a Samaritan, for a drink?’ – Jews, in fact, do not associate with Samaritans. Jesus replied: ‘If you only knew what God is offering and who it is that is saying to you: Give me a drink, you would have been the one to ask, and he would have given you living water.’" - John 4:5-10, which is part of today's Gospel for the Third Sunday of Lent. This painting of Christ and the Samaritan Woman is in the museum at the Dominican priory of Santa Sabina in Rome. There is a good sermon for today on Godzdogz.

"In your nature, eternal Godhead, I shall come to know my nature. And what is my nature, boundless love? It is fire, because you are nothing but a fire of love. And you have given humankind a share in this nature, for by the fire of love you created us. And so with all other people and every created thing; you made them out of love." - from a prayer of St Catherine of Siena. In this detail from a chapel in Santa Sabina, Rome, St Catherine receives the heart of Christ, a sign of divine love and mercy. 29 April is usually the feast of St Catherine of Siena, the Dominican saint and mystic.

St Catherine receives the Sacred Heart



"Baptism is the sacrament of Christ's death and Passion, according as a man is born anew in Christ in virtue of His Passion; but the Eucharist is the sacrament of Christ's Passion according as a man is made perfect in union with Christ Who suffered. Hence, as Baptism is called the sacrament of Faith, which is the foundation of the spiritual life, so the Eucharist is termed the sacrament of Charity, which is "the bond of perfection" (Colossians 3:14)." - St Thomas Aquinas OP, who is sometimes called the Angelic Doctor on account of his penetrating insight into the mysteries of God, and also Doctor of the Eucharist because of his sound doctrine on this most sublime mystery which we celebrate today. Today, 23 June 2011, is Corpus Christi, and this detail from an embroidered banner is in St Dominic's, Newcastle.

St Margaret was born in Hungary of Anglo-Saxon and Hungarian parents. When William of Normandy conquered England she found refuge with King Malcolm III of Scotland, and they were married in 1070 and had eight children. She reformed the royal court, founded monasteries, and supported major reforms of Church life. She died in Edinburgh on 16 November 1093. She is remembered for the happiness of her marriage, for her devotion to prayer and learning, and especially for her generosity to the poor. This stained glass window of the saint is in St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh.

St Martin, whose feast is today, was born in the Roman province of Pannonia (approximating to the western half of modern Hungary) in about 316 and was educated at Pavia in Italy. He was baptized, left the army and after spending some time as a hermit on an island off the Ligurian coast, founded a monastery at Ligugé in western France, where he lived a monastic life guided by St Hilary. Later he was ordained priest and became bishop of Tours. In his actions he gave an example of what a good shepherd should be. He founded other monasteries, educated the clergy, and preached the Gospel to the poor. He died in 397. The most famous legend about St Martin took place while he was still a soldier in Amiens. Seeing a beggar at the city gates he gave half of his military cloak to him, and later had a dream in which the beggar revealed himself as Christ. This stained glass window in Little St Mary's church in Cambridge recounts that incident.

On 21 November, the Church celebrates the Presentation of the Virgin Mary in the Temple, that is, the total dedication of her life to God and to the following of His Way in her life. So complete was this dedication of the Immaculate Virgin that Christ, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, was born of her. This rather charming detail from a window in St Mary's church, North Stoke shows the Virgin Mary with St Anne, her mother, from whom she learnt to follow and love God.

Martyrdom of St Andrew



One of the miracle stories attributed to St Francis Xavier recounts how he recovered his crucifix after losing it at sea. It was said that Francis Xavier was caught up in a storm as he was travelling to Malacca in Malaysia in the year 1546. With much faith, he threw the Cross into the sea, asking God to make it an instrument to pacify the turbulent sea. God indeed came to his aid; the storm halted and the sea became calm. Upon reaching the shores of Malacca, St Francis found a crab crawling towards him holding his crucifix in its claws. This fresco of the miracle is in the Jesuit church of Il Gesú in Rome. December 3 is the feast of St Francis Xavier.
