Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque stained glass window at St. Michael in Old TownThis scene portrays Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque at prayer in a highly decorated Romanesque Convent chapel. Accompanied by two angels Jesus appears revealing to her His Sacred Heart. This takes place in the 1600’s in a small town in France and is thus not a Bible story as are the other windows.

Franz Mayer includes the Blessed Sacrament exposed for adoration in the monstrance upon the altar. Margaret Mary’s modesty and humility are present with symbols of rich detail like the brocade horizontal curtain and white lilies.

This Window is located right next to the Sacred Heart Altar.
