||The Pentecost Window|
brightly colored of the windows beautifully sums up the whole of the Church
The red circle in the background, part of the trefoil (an ancient symbol of the Trinity), represents the Father, the Beginning of all things.
Overlapping the circle is the cross, representing the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Son.
And flowing out of both the Father and the Son is the dove, symbol of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:10, Luke 3:22), the gift of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4). The Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son (John 15:26) to be the presence of the Risen Jesus among the faith community to teach, guide, empower their witness, and to help them remember the heart of the Gospel message, "God is Love" (1 John 4:16), a Love that in the End will be all things and fill all things (1 Corinthians 15:28, Jerusalem Bible).
"To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen." (1 Timothy 1:17)
