Jeffrey Window

THE JEFFREY WINDOW

Designed and built by the Nicola D' Ascenzo Studios 
of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 
A memorial by the people of the Church to 
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Andrew Jeffrey. 
The central theme of the window is our Lord's earthly life and ministry. At the top He is shown in an attitude of invitation. Below in the tracery, and to the sides, are the scrolls of the Law and the Gospel. 
The upper band of medallions in the lancets depicts certain decisive episodes of the gospel narratives in which the needs of people are paramount. From left to right, these are: 

BLESSING LITTLE CHILDREN. 
THE vVoMAN TAKEN IN ADULTERY. HEALING THE PARALYTIC, 
THE TRIBUTE MONEY. 
CLEANSING THE TEMPLE. SENDING FORTH THE DISCIPLES, 

The center of the next band of medallions presents two aspects of our Lord's earthly work: Prayer, represented by The Agony in Gethsemane; and Preaching, represented by The Sermon on the Mount. On either hand are the conventional symbols of the Four Evangelists, the Angel for St. Matthew, the Lion for St. Mark, the Ox for St. Luke, and the Eagle for St. John. 
The lower band of medallions presents six incidents from the Baptism to the Crucifixion : 
THE BAPTISM BY JOHN, THE TEMPTATION. CALLING THE DISCIPLES. TEACHING BY THE WAYSIDE, THE LAST SUPPER. 
THE VIA DoLOROSA.
