Sacrament of Communion

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat, this is my body.” Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of  you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many of the forgiveness of sins.”

MATTHEW 26: 26-28

The elements of Holy Communion are central to this window and stand out in relief before the cross. The Host, a thin wafer of unleavened bread, symbolizes the body of Christ. Below it is the chalice, or cup, that bears the consecrated wine which represents t he blood of Christ. The grapes on t he grapevine also symbolize t he wine of Communion and the blood of Christ, t he True Vine.
