The symbolism of the Rose Window interprets the cardinal Christian virtues. At the top is the Chi Rho, the monogram of Christ, representing Love. Justice is represented by the scales; Hope by an anchor; Wisdom by a lamp; Faith by a chalice and Courage by a sword. The motif of the lilies represents Purity.
