"Today we are celebrating the Immaculate Conception of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. As we venerate her life of holiness, full of grace from the beginning of her existence, we praise God and acclaim the power of his gifts. May all Christians, filled with joyful hope and following the example of Mary, be faithful to God's grace and seek a life of holiness" – Pope Benedict XVI. My sermon for today's Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception can be read here. This window of the Immaculate Virgin being welcomed into heaven and accompanied by the saints and angels is in the former Dominican Priory church of Hawkesyard.

Mother of our Salvation



This needs to be viewed large: the west window of the Farm Street church in London is a splendid celebration of the Immaculate Conception, whose feast is today, 8 December. Old Testament kings and prophets gather around her because she is "the highest honour of our race", and she alone was found worthy to bear Jesus Christ, the One for whom they longed. The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception is the doctrine that the Virgin Mary was conceived without original sin, that twist in our nature that makes our will unable to follow what it knows to be right. It was this grace that enabled Mary to give a true and considered “Yes” to the request, conveyed by the Angel Gabriel, that she should consent to be the mother of the incarnate God. The doctrine was almost universally believed over the centuries and but was only formally defined as a doctrine of the Church by Pope Pius IX in 1854. It is one of the Marian doctrines that Islam shares with the Catholic Church.

Immaculate Conception west window



"Christ loved the Church and sacrificed himself for her to make her holy, so that when he took her to himself she would be glorious, with no speck or wrinkle or anything like that, but holy and faultless." - Ephesians 5:25f Our Lady is the image of the sinless Church, and today *8 December) we celebrate her Immaculate Conception. "O God, you prepared a fit dwelling place for your Son through the Virgin's Immaculate Conception. Because of the foreseen death of that Son, you kept her entirely without blemish. We beseech you that through her pleadings you would grant us, also, to come to you without stain. Through the same Christ your Son and our Lord. Amen" - the Collect for today's feast.

"Tu Rex Gloriae Christe..."



""Stay with us, for it is toward evening and the day is now far spent." So he went in to stay with them. When he was at table with them, he took the bread and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to them. And their eyes were opened and they recognized him; and he vanished out of their sight. They said to each other, "Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the scriptures?" And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem; and they found the eleven gathered together and those who were with them, who said, "The Lord has risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!" Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he was known to them in the breaking of the bread." - Luke 24:29-35, which is today's Gospel for Easter Wednesday. Detail from a window in St Alban's Cathedral by Christopher Webb.

The Lord's my Shepherd



"The Annunciation to Mary inaugurates "the fullness of time", the time of the fulfillment of God's promises and preparations. Mary was invited to conceive him in whom the "whole fullness of deity" would dwell "bodily". The divine response to her question, "How can this be, since I know not man?", was given by the power of the Spirit: "The Holy Spirit will come upon you." - from the Catechism of the Catholic Church Detail from a beautiful window by Christopher Webb, c.1939 in St Alban's Cathedral. 25 March is the Solemnity of the Annunciation.

The Annunciation (Webb)



"Today heaven opened when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan. The Spirit, like a dove, rested upon him, and the Father’s voice resounded: This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased. The Holy Spirit came down on him in bodily form, and a voice came from heaven: This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased". - Matins responsory for the Baptism of the Lord. This stained glass window is in Exeter College, Oxford.

Baptism of Christ



"After Jesus was taken up into heaven the apostles went back from the Mount of Olives, as it is called, to Jerusalem, a short distance away, no more than a sabbath walk; and when they reached the city they went to the upper room where they were staying; there were Peter and John, James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Jude son of James. All these joined in continuous prayer, together with several women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers." - Acts 1:12-14, which is the first reading for the 7th Sunday of Easter.

The Apostles in the Cenacle



"Once, when Peter and John were going up to the Temple for the prayers at the ninth hour, it happened that there was a man being carried past. He was a cripple from birth; and they used to put him down every day near the Temple entrance called the Beautiful Gate so that he could beg from the people going in. When this man saw Peter and John on their way into the Temple he begged from them. Both Peter and John looked straight at him and said, ‘Look at us.’ He turned to them expectantly, hoping to get something from them, but Peter said, ‘I have neither silver nor gold, but I will give you what I have: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, walk!’ Peter then took him by the hand and helped him to stand up. Instantly his feet and ankles became firm, he jumped up, stood, and began to walk, and he went with them into the Temple, walking and jumping and praising God. Everyone could see him walking and praising God, and they recognised him as the man who used to sit begging at the Beautiful Gate of the Temple. They were all astonished and unable to explain what had happened to him." - Acts 3:1-10 (the First Reading for Easter Wednesday) This stained glass detail is from Exeter College Oxford.

St Peter healing the lame



"They arrested the apostles and put them in the common prison. But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out and said, "Go and stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this Life." And when they heard this, they entered the temple at daybreak and taught." – Acts 5:18-21, which is part of today's First Reading at Mass. My sermon for today can be read here. Detail from a window in Exeter College chapel, probably depicting Acts 12:7ff, but which can also illustrate today's reading.

An Angel Releases the Apostle Peter



"About this time, when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenists made a complaint against the Hebrews: in the daily distribution their own widows were being overlooked. So the Twelve called a full meeting of the disciples and addressed them, ‘It would not be right for us to neglect the word of God so as to give out food; you, brothers, must select from among yourselves seven men of good reputation, filled with the Spirit and with wisdom; we will hand over this duty to them, and continue to devote ourselves to prayer and to the service of the word.’ The whole assembly approved of this proposal and elected Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, together with Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus of Antioch, a convert to Judaism. They presented these to the apostles, who prayed and laid their hands on them. The word of the Lord continued to spread: the number of disciples in Jerusalem was greatly increased, and a large group of priests made their submission to the faith." - Acts 6:1-7, which is the first reading at Mass today. Detail from a stained glass window in Exeter College, Oxford.

Ordination of the seven deacons



Since the 13th-century, the month of May has been known as the 'month of Mary'. As Pope Paul VI wrote in 1965: "The month of May is... a month which the piety of the faithful has long dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God. Our heart rejoices at the thought of the moving tribute of faith and love which will soon be paid to the Queen of Heaven in every corner of the earth. For this is the month during which Christians, in their churches and their homes, offer the Virgin Mother more fervent and loving acts of homage and veneration; and it is the month in which a greater abundance of God's merciful gifts comes down to us from our Mother's throne... Since Mary is rightly to be regarded as the way by which we are led to Christ, the person who encounters Mary cannot help but encounter Christ likewise. For what other reason do we continually turn to Mary except to seek the Christ in her arms, to seek our Savior in her, through her, and with her? To Him men are to turn amid the anxieties and perils of this world, urged on by duty and driven by the compelling needs of their heart, to find a haven of salvation, a transcendent fountain of life." This detail of a gorgeous window in the Lady chapel of Sherborne Abbey is by Christopher Webb, c.1930s.

This rose window in the north transept of St Alban's was only installed in the 19th-century and filled with modern glass. I thought it was rather striking.

St Alban's Rose window



"On today’s solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus the Church presents us this mystery for our contemplation: the mystery of the heart of a God who feels compassion and who bestows all his love upon humanity. A mysterious love, which in the texts of the New Testament is revealed to us as God’s boundless and passionate love for mankind. God does not lose heart in the face of ingratitude or rejection by the people he has chosen; rather, with infinite mercy he sends his only-begotten Son into the world to take upon himself the fate of a shattered love, so that by defeating the power of evil and death he could restore to human beings enslaved by sin their dignity as sons and daughters. But this took place at great cost—the only-begotten Son of the Father was sacrificed on the Cross: “Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end” (cf. Jn 13:1). The symbol of this love which transcends death is his side, pierced by a spear. The Apostle John, an eyewitness, tells us: “one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water” (cf. Jn 19:34)." – Benedict XVI. Detail from a stained glass window in the Catholic church of The Sacred Heart and Saint Aldhelm in Sherborne.

Presentation of the Lord (Honington)



"Thomas, called the Twin, who was one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. When the disciples said, ‘We have seen the Lord’, he answered, ‘Unless I see the holes that the nails made in his hands and can put my finger into the holes they made, and unless I can put my hand into his side, I refuse to believe.’ Eight days later the disciples were in the house again and Thomas was with them. The doors were closed, but Jesus came in and stood among them. ‘Peace be with you’ he said. Then he spoke to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here; look, here are my hands. Give me your hand; put it into my side. Doubt no longer but believe.’ Thomas replied, ‘My Lord and my God!’ Jesus said to him: ‘You believe because you can see me. Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe.’" - John 20:24-29, which is part of today's Gospel. Detail from a window in the parish church of Bishop's Tachbrook.

My Lord and my God



"Mary stayed outside near the tomb, weeping. Then, still weeping, she stooped to look inside, and saw two angels in white sitting where the body of Jesus had been, one at the head, the other at the feet. They said, ‘Woman, why are you weeping?’ ‘They have taken my Lord away’ she replied ‘and I don’t know where they have put him.’ As she said this she turned round and saw Jesus standing there, though she did not recognise him. Jesus said, ‘Woman, why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?’ Supposing him to be the gardener, she said, ‘Sir, if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will go and remove him.’ Jesus said, ‘Mary!’ She knew him then and said to him in Hebrew, ‘Rabbuni!’ – which means Master. Jesus said to her, ‘Do not cling to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go and find the brothers, and tell them: I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’ So Mary of Magdala went and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord and that he had said these things to her." - John 20:11-18 Detail from a stained glass window in the parish church of Bishop's Tachbrook.

"Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, "The one I shall kiss is the man; seize him." And he came up to Jesus at once and said, "Hail, Master!" And he kissed him. Jesus said to him, "Friend, why are you here?" Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus and seized him." - Matthew 26:48-50.
