Tomorrow is St Andrew's day here in Scotland. So I thought that I'd show you some photographs of a beautiful stained glass window which depicts Scotland's national saint.
This wonderful window is in St John's Episcopal Church on Union Street in Greenock.
The colours are lovely. There are many other beautiful windows in this church - I must get around to writing about them soon.
Joining with InSPIREd Sunday.
Beautiful stained glass!ReplyDelete
What a lovely window! Such beautiful colours! I love the pattern/design on his cloak. I wish you would have written something about who St Andrew was and why he is Scotlands national saint. I will look it up on Google later on.ReplyDelete

You know I walked past that church but never thought to go inside, mind you that was when I was younger and working down the Uni for a couple of daysReplyDelete

I know how tricky it is to photograph stained glass so I really appreciate these. I've also enjoyed some of your earlier posts.ReplyDelete
Lovely Windows! My grandmother used to take us to Mass and light candles to St. Andrew for her father-in-law. I didn't know he was Scotland's National Saint. Do you happen to know why?ReplyDelete
