Stained Glass At St Francis Church

This is just one of the 21 beautiful stained glass windows at St Francis Church and it is one of several that show scenes from St Francis' life. It was done by George Boos of Munich in the early 1900s and shows the Stigmata of St Francis. I, for one, didn't know that he had stigmata on his hands and feet.

I didn't know that, either. St. Francis is my favorite "saint" I think. The window is gorgeous!

Every church stained glass window has a story to tell. This one is no exception.

The stained glass is lovely. I didn't know about the stigmata on his hands and feet either, and my church was named after him. Very interesting!
