Conception of Jesus Window

Each Sunday we confess, in the words of the Apostles' Creed, "I believe in Jesus Christ..., who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary." This window depicts the Holy Spirit, in the form of a dove, descending to implant the very Son of God within the blessed Virgin. Because of the beauty of the lily and symmetry of the fleur-de-lis, a stylized lily, it has been a symbol for the Virgin Mary in her purity, the annunciation, and the human nature of Christ.
