St. Scholastica Chapel Window
St. Agnes

St. Agnes, one of the seven women mentioned in Eucharistic Prayer I of the Mass, carries a lamb, which in Latin is “agnus.” Legend has it that, after her death, she appeared to her parents and others with a snow-white lamb symbolizing her purity and innocence. In the lower portion of the window, the sword indicates martyrdom and a book suggests the numerous writings her life inspired.
