Window 8 - He descended into hell, on the third day he rose again

19 November 2015

He descended into hell, on the third day he rose again.

Stained glass window depicts a crucial truth of our faith - Resurrection of Christ that came after his descent to hell: "Jesus did not descend into hell to deliver the damned, nor to destroy the hell of damnation, but to free the just who had gone before him." (The Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 633).
