St Louis Bertrand



A Dominican lay brother who lived from 1407-1491, he was inspired while praying at the tomb of St Dominic in Bologna to join the Order. A model of humility and obedience, Bl. James had learnt to make stained glass windows from his father in Ulm, a German town well-known for this trade. As a Dominican brother he continued to make stained glass windows for the churches and convents that asked for them. Among the works of his that survive is a window in the great church of St Patronius in Bologna. Today (11 Oct) is his feast day. This stained glass window of the Beatus is in St Dominic's Priory church in London.

Regina Caeli



"The Cross had asked the questions; the Resurrection had answered them...The Cross had asked: "Why does God permit evil and sin to nail Justice to a tree?" The Resurrection answered: "That sin, having done its worst, might exhaust itself and this be overcome by Love that is stronger than either sin or death." – Archbishop Fulton Sheen. Stained glass from the chapel of Dunwoodie Seminary.

Resurrexit tertia die



"Jesus showed himself again to the disciples. It was by the Sea of Tiberias, and it happened like this: Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee and two more of his disciples were together. Simon Peter said, ‘I’m going fishing.’ They replied, ‘We’ll come with you.’ They went out and got into the boat but caught nothing that night. It was light by now and there stood Jesus on the shore, though the disciples did not realise that it was Jesus. Jesus called out, ‘Have you caught anything, friends?’ And when they answered, ‘No’, he said, ‘Throw the net out to starboard and you’ll find something.’ So they dropped the net, and there were so many fish that they could not haul it in. The disciple Jesus loved said to Peter, ‘It is the Lord.’ At these words ‘It is the Lord’, Simon Peter, who had practically nothing on, wrapped his cloak round him and jumped into the water. The other disciples came on in the boat, towing the net and the fish; they were only about a hundred yards from land. As soon as they came ashore they saw that there was some bread there, and a charcoal fire with fish cooking on it. Jesus said, ‘Bring some of the fish you have just caught.’ Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net to the shore, full of big fish, one hundred and fifty-three of them; and in spite of there being so many the net was not broken. Jesus said to them, ‘Come and have breakfast.’ None of the disciples was bold enough to ask, ‘Who are you?’; they knew quite well it was the Lord. Jesus then stepped forward, took the bread and gave it to them, and the same with the fish. This was the third time that Jesus showed himself to the disciples after rising from the dead." – John 21:1-14, which is part of today's Gospel at Mass. Stained glass from the chapel of Dunwoodie Seminary.

Breakfast with the Risen Lord



"St. Agnes of Montepulciano may be best known for an incident that occurred many years after her death. About seventy years after Agnes died, St. Catherine of Siena made a pilgrimage to the shrine of this revered Dominican foundress. St. Catherine bowed to kiss Agnes’ foot, the saint raised it up toward her. Catherine may not have been totally surprised, as miraculous characteristics had surrounded Agnes’ life. This “little lamb” was born not far from Montepulciano in 1268. She expressed a desire to give her life to God and practiced pious exercises from an early age. Now and then, her parents gave in to her requests to visit the various convents in town. On one such occasion, Agnes and her mother were passing a house of ill repute, when a flock of crows suddenly descended upon her, pecking and scratching the little girl. Her mother remarked that the crows represented demonic forces threatened by her purity. Indeed, years later, Agnes would be asked to found a convent on that very spot. In her teens, Agnes joined the Franciscans in Montepulciano and rose to become its prioress. Small white flakes in the form of crosses fell gently from the heavens in celebration. It is said that the sisters have preserved some of these until today. In 1306, God inspired Agnes to found a Dominican convent with three stones given her by the Blessed Mother in honor of the Trinity. The Blessed Mother had visited Agnes many times. On one of these occasions she allowed Agnes to hold the Christ Child, but Agnes showed great reluctance in giving him back. Toward the end of her life, Agnes sought healing from some famous springs. Although she did not receive healing herself, her prayers effected the resurrection of a child who had drowned in the springs. In 1317, Agnes died in Montepulciano and received her long-awaited reward". Today is her feast day. Stained glass in the Dominican nuns' monastery in Buffalo NY.

St Agnes of Montepulciano



"I saw that there was no temple in the city since the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb were themselves the temple, and the city did not need the sun or the moon for light, since it was lit by the radiant glory of God and the Lamb was a lighted torch for it." – Apocalypse 21:22f, which is part of today's 1st reading at Mass. This stained glass is from a church in Ely.

The Lamb is the Lamp



" Among the saints in heaven the Virgin Mary Mother of God is venerated in a special way. Because of the mission she received from God, her life is most closely linked with the mysteries of Jesus Christ, and there is no one who has followed in the footsteps of the Incarnate Word more closely and with more merit than she: and no one has more grace and power over the most Sacred Heart of the Son of God and through Him with the Heavenly Father. Holier than the Cherubim and Seraphim, she enjoys unquestionably greater glory than all the other saints, for she is "full of grace," she is the Mother of God, who happily gave birth to the Redeemer for us. Since she is therefore, "Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope," let us all cry to her "mourning and weeping in this vale of tears," and confidently place ourselves and all we have under her patronage. She became our Mother also when the divine Redeemer offered the sacrifice of Himself; and hence by this title also, we are her children. She teaches us all the virtues; she gives us her Son and with Him all the help we need, for God "wished us to have everything through Mary." – Pope Blessed Pius XII. Stained glass window in Leeds Minster.

Our Lady of the Magnificat



"Mary is blessed because she has faith, because she believed, and in this faith she received the Word of God into her womb in order to give him to the world. The joy born of the Word can now expand to all those who, by faith, let themselves be changed by God’s word. The Gospel of Luke presents this mystery of hearing and joy in two texts. Jesus says: “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it” (8:21). And in reply to a woman from the crowd who blesses the womb that bore him and the breasts that nursed him, Jesus reveals the secret of true joy: “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it!” (11:28). Jesus points out Mary’s true grandeur, making it possible for each of us to attain that blessedness which is born of the word received and put into practice. I remind all Christians that our personal and communal relationship with God depends on our growing familiarity with the word of God." – Pope Benedict XVI. Stained glass window of the Annunciation in the Dominican church of St Rose in Springfield KY. This was the first Dominican church and Priory in the USA.

Dominicans and Books – Our Lady Annunciate



This detail from a chasuble shows the name of Christ in Greek, shortened into 'ihs' and the inscription in Latin: "May the Name of the Lord be blessed". The Most Holy Name of Jesus has been venerated from the very beginning. “Jesus” means “The Lord saves” or “God is salvation” (cf. Mt 1:21) and carries the promise of salvation for all. But more importantly, it as a synonym for the person of Jesus and signifies his power and authority. Scripture reminds us that through the invocation of the Holy Name of Jesus, we can baptize, pardon sins, utter prophesy; expel demons, heal the sick, and do other deeds of power. In His Holy Name we gather for prayer, perform acts of charity, and ultimately, suffer persecution. As Jesus promised, “If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it” (Jn 14:14). Scripture defines a Christian as one who believes in the Holy Name of Jesus (Jn 1:12; Acts 3:16). One of the greatest promoters of the devotion to the Most Holy Name of Jesus was St Bernardino of Siena, whose feast is today.

Holy Name of Jesus



"One of the greatest promoters of the devotion to the Most Holy Name of Jesus was San Bernardino of Siena. He was born on September 8th, 1380, orphaned at six, and then raised by his aunts. When the plague struck Siena, he took command of the hospital, sacrificing his own health. He eventually joined the Franciscans and was ordained priest in 1404. In 1417 he received the gift of preaching and soon became the “Archbishop Sheen” of his day. He spoke powerfully and eloquently of the Most Holy Name. Speaking in native dialects and using illustrations, anecdotes, mimicry, and humor, he shared profound theological insights, exhorting people to reform their lives and embrace ways of peace and charity. He created a visual aide to illustrate his preaching: the initials IHS pierced by a cross and enthroned in a sunburst in a field of blue. (“IHS” are the first and last initials of the name “Jesus” (Old Latin: “IhSUS”: ‘Ih’ [h signifies a breath mark] and ‘S’).) Tens of thousands would gather at a time to hear him proclaim the Most Holy Name of Jesus, the monogram was erected on buildings throughout Italy, and a movement was fostered to change the words of the “Hail Mary”, inserting the name “Jesus” after the words “blessed are the fruit of Thy womb”. Jealous of his success, he was charged with heresy. Pope Martin V heard his case and was so touched by Bernardino he led a procession through the streets of Rome carrying the monogram of the Holy Name! Bernardino refused all honors preferring the life of an itinerant preacher. He continued to proclaim the Holy Name until his death on May 20, 1444. San Bernardino, Apostle of the Most Holy Name, is still venerated as one of the greatest preachers of all time and is invoked for respiratory and gambling problems and for those in advertising, public relations, and communications." This painting of the saint is a detail from 'The Virgin and Child with Saint Bernardino and Other Saints' by Moretto da Brescia (c.1498–1554). It is in the National Gallery in London. The inscription in Latin reads: "Father, manifest your Name to all men".

St Bernardino of Siena



"From the frequent meditation on the Mysteries, the soul little by little and imperceptibly draws and absorbs the virtues they contain, and is wondrously enkindled with a longing for things immortal, and becomes strongly and easily impelled to follow the path which Christ Himself and His Mother have followed. The recitation of identical formulas repeated so many times, rather than rendering the prayer sterile and boring, has on the contrary the admirable quality of infusing confidence in him who prays and brings to bear a gentle compulsion on the motherly Heart of Mary." – Pope Pius XII Painting by Vasari from the Dominican church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence.

Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary



"We well know the Rosary's powerful efficacy to obtain the maternal aid of the Virgin. By no means is there only one way to pray to obtain this aid. However, We consider the Holy Rosary the most convenient and most fruitful means, as is clearly suggested by the very origin of this practice, heavenly rather than human, and by its nature. What prayers are better adapted and more beautiful than the Lord's prayer and the angelic salutation, which are the flowers with which this mystical crown is formed?" – Pope Pius XII Stained glass window from the Dominican nuns' Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary in Buffalo, NY.

Our Lady Gives the Rosary to St Dominic



"We do not hesitate to affirm again publicly that We put great confidence in the Holy Rosary for the healing of evils which afflict our times. Not with force, not with arms, not with human power, but with Divine help obtained through the means of this prayer, strong like David with his sling, the Church undaunted shall be able to confront the infernal enemy, repeating to him the words of the young shepherd: "Thou comest to me with a sword, and a spear, and with a shield; but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of Hosts, the God of armies . . . and all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear, for this is his battle, and he will deliver you into our hands" (1 Kings 17: 45-47)" – Pope Pius XII Stained glass window from Holy Rosary Priory in Portland, OR.

"Holy angel, to whose care this poor soul and wretched body of mine have been given, do not cast me off because I am a sinner, do not hold aloof from me because I am not clean. Do not yield your place to the Spirit of Evil; guide me by your influence on my mortal body. Take my limp hand and bring me to the path that leads to salvation. Yes, holy angel, God has given you charge of my miserable little soul and body. Forgive every deed of mine that has ever offended you at any time in my life; forgive the sins I have committed today. Protect me during the coming night and keep me safe from the machinations and contrivances of the Enemy, that I may not sin and arouse God’s anger. Intercede for me with the Lord; ask him to make me fear him more and more, and to enable me to give him the service his goodness deserves. Amen." – St Macarius of Egypt. Today, 2 October, is the feast of the Guardian Angels. Stained glass from St Mary's Basilica in Phoenix, AZ.

Saint Francis of Assisi



When I see that the burden is beyond my strength, I do not consider or analyze it or probe into it, but I run like a child to the Heart of Jesus and say only one word to Him: “You can do all things.” And then I keep silent, because I know that Jesus Himself will intervene in the matter, and as for me, instead of tormenting myself, I use that time to love Him.” - St Maria Faustyna Kowalska, apostle of the Divine Mercy, whose feast is on 5 October. Relic from the church of the Holy Rosary in Baltimore.

"After this question, brothers and sisters, let us listen to the Lord as He answers and shows us the way to that tent, saying, "The one Who walks without stain and practices justice; who speaks truth from his heart; who has not used his tongue for deceit; who has done no evil to his neighbor; who has given no place to slander against his neighbor." This is the one who, under any temptation from the malicious devil, has brought him to naught (Ps. 14[15]:4) by casting him and his temptation from the sight of his heart; and who has laid hold of his thoughts while they were still young and dashed them against Christ (Ps. 14[15]:4; 136[137]:9)." – from the Prologue of the Rule of St Benedict.

Our Lady Carried into Heaven



"With so many witnesses in a great cloud on every side of us, we too, then, should throw off everything that hinders us, especially the sin that clings so easily, and keep running steadily in the race we have started. Let us not lose sight of Jesus, who leads us in our faith and brings it to perfection: for the sake of the joy which was still in the future, he endured the cross, disregarding the shamefulness of it, and from now on has taken his place at the right of God’s throne. Think of the way he stood such opposition from sinners and then you will not give up for want of courage. In the fight against sin, you have not yet had to keep fighting to the point of death." – Hebrews 12:1-4, which is today's 2nd reading at Mass. This photo is of Calvary, the place where Jesus Christ was crucified. It is within the church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

"Reign, O Mother and Queen, by showing us the path of holiness and by guiding and assisting us that we may never stray from it. In the heights of heaven you exercise your primacy over the choirs of angels who acclaim you as their sovereign, and over the legions of saints who delight in beholding your dazzling beauty. So, too, reign over the entire human race, above all by opening the path of faith to those who do not yet know your Divine Son." – from a prayer of Pope Pius XII. This painting is by Annibale Caracci, made for a Roman cardinal sometime after the artist’s arrival in Rome in 1595. It is housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC.
