THE LAST SUPPER AND THE EUCHARIST:
The chalice and host at the top of the window is encircled by light. The blessing and the transformation pass down through the feast of grapes and corn. The interwoven wheat and grapes flow into the scene of the Last Supper towards the foot of the window.
The grapes and wheat merge from abstract to concrete forms – from the unsubstantial to the substantial, a transformation from seed through germination through to full harvest and as the blessing manifesting as the consecrated bread and wine. The flowing down of the red colour of the Blood of Christ recalls us as recipients of the blessing, and of ourselves being fed and sustained by this Eucharist.
The rosary appears in the form of infinity, recalling the words ‘I am the first and the last” and the continuity of the Christian message through the Eucharistic feast.
We are reminded of his words in the inscription below:
“Do this in memory of me.”
