Consecration to the Holy Child Jesus glass stained window

9. Consecration to the Holy Child Jesus

De La Salle’s spiritual advisers, Fathers Nicolas Barre and Nicolas Roland, were known for their work with the poor — a path that De La Salle would follow. The Cathedral of Reims, pictured in the background of this window, is where De La Salle was installed as a canon at the age of 15, though he would later resign this position in 1683 to share in the poverty of the Brothers. The artistic detail in these windows is reflected in the vestments and the halo.
