This week it happens that the subject of The New Testament: Episode 36 in our AIC Bible Study series and the Gospel text for Third Sunday After Epiphany is the same text from John 2:1-11, the account of the first of seven “signs”, being the Wedding at Cana. Episode 36 is illustrated with several stained glass windows, including a Mayer of Munich window at St. Joseph’s Villa Chapel, Richmond, VA. Watch Episode 36 on our You Tube channel.
I also posted a Podcast Homily version which is linked from the page of the same name at the AIC web site. Listen to the Podcast Homily version.
There is also a Podcast version of the sound track for the video, which includes the theme music for the series. Listen to the sound track only.
The Mayer of Munich window shows Jesus, with the Blessed Virgin Mary looking on, at left background, instructing the servants to fill the jugs with water. For reasons of space, the Mayer artists included only three jugs rather than the six described by St. John.
The current series of Bible Study videos is exploring the seven signs. In Episode 37, which will be posted midweek during the week of January 26th, I will focus on the Healing of the Nobleman’s Son, the Lame Man and take up Part 1 of 2 on the healing of the Blind Man.
Paintings on Light can be ordered from my author page at Amazon in a paperback edition which includes pictures and narratve on all the stained glass windows in the Chapel, plus a brief history of the Chapel and the firm of Franz Mayer of Munich, Inc. I have not been able to complete the DVD Companion for the book, owing to technical issues, which I hope will be resolved soon.
