Design Rendering St. Stephen's, Montrose, CO

This chancel window dedicated to St. Stephen represents martyrdom as an Offering and Ascension. Wheat is a minor motif in the window drawn from John 12:24, Tertullian's dictum (Blood of the Martyrs is the Seed of the Church), and the eucharistic spirituality of St. Ignatius, "I am God's wheat ground fine by the lion's teeth to be made purest bread for Christ."
