Dear Friends at St. James:


Our first major stop was Chartres Cathedral. It is one of the most important sites for stain glass. We took a tour from the famous Malcolm Miller. He told us that the Cathedral is like a library. You cannot read all the information in one visit. I was overwhelmed by the immense amount of glass and the many stories it depicts from the Scriptures. One of the oldest windows depicts a "Jesse Tree" or the family tree of Christ. Mr. Miller showed us one window that combines the story of Adam and Eve with the parable of the good Samaritain. The two together give a complete account of creation, fall and rdemption all in one window. The Cathedral was built to attract pilgrims. Today as a UNESCO world heritage site it attracts both pilgrims and tourists. The visit was a very moving spiritual and educational experience.
