Window 5 - We believe in Jesus Christ

19 November 2015

We believe in  Jesus Christ. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

The 5th window is an attempt to explain the mystery of incarnation of the Son of God. Virgin Mary was chosen to be a Mother of Jesus. " For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form" (Colossians 2,9) "The Father's only Son, conceived as man in the womb of the Virgin Mary, is "Christ", that is to say, anointed by the Holy Spirit, from the beginning of his human existence /.../ Thus the whole life of Jesus Christ will make manifest "how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power." (The Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 486) "When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was openedHoly Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” (Luke,3,21)

I'ts an epiphany of Jesus as a Massiah of Israel and as a Son of a God. People need to look through Eyes of Faith to understand and fully embrace the act of Incarnation of God. A scene of healing a blind man and Paul's Vision on the Road to Damascus are symbolizing Act of Faith, being given a 'new vision'. "We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father" (John, 1,14)
