St. Scholastica Chapel Window
St. Cecilia

St. Cecilia, one of the seven women mentioned in Eucharistic Prayer I of the Mass, holds an organ because she became known as the patron of musicians. The sword and crossed palms in the lower part of the window symbolize the legend of her triumphant martyrdom.
