Below is a wider view of the window in its entirety. This Catholic church has a total of 60 stained glass windows throughout the building. Construction started in 1907 and took over 20 years to complete. The Basilica is the co-cathedral of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Mpls. together with the Cathedral of St. Paul.

This is the wide angle view of this window.

    Very pretty well done!

  • Thanks so much. I’m amazed my camera was able to capture this. It was very high up on the wall and the ceilings are very steep. Considering the camera I was using, I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome!

    Wonderful window and photo!!

  • Oh wow, thank you soooo much. It’s amazing the “treasures” you find while attending a funeral! I’ve been in this church so many times and the windows are all glorious, but this one is the “centerpiece”. Glad you liked it. Thanks for this honor!
