Nativity – St. Alphonsus Ligouri “Rock” Catholic Church (St. Louis, Missouri)

On a recent trip to Saint Louis Missouri, I was able to photograph all of the beautiful stained glass windows on the first level of this magnificent Redemptorist church. As the Christmas holiday approaches, I thought you might enjoy seeing the lovely Nativity window  from around 1905. This window was designed by Meyer & Company of Munich, New York.  I absolutely love this window and so many others in this wonderful church. I will post many more of them at a later date. For now, December 2016, wishing you all an inspired holiday with your families and friends, and may joy and peace be known throughout our very troubled world. Here are some closer looks at elements from this beautiful window.

      I’ve been having some back problems and staying away from the computer for a while. I wanted to get this out to you and the other wordpress friends. Have a beautiful Christmas, Lyn.

        So sorry to hear about you back Bruce, hope it gets better soon. The window was a delight, I have had the most awful cold all of December so far and have not be able to visit any churches, so my windows this year have been very few…….so it was lovely to see this one. Hope you have a lovely and pain free Christmas 🙂
