Easter, with images-inspired by the glorious English cathedral windows of Lincoln, York and Canterbury, begins with Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, then the dramatic events unfold to the last supper, Jesus’ betrayal and arrest, his trial and mockery, the crucifixion, resurrection and his appearance to the disciples, culminating in his ascension into heaven.
The beloved hymn of Saint Francis of Assisi, The Canticle of the Sun, is one of the greatest songs of Christendom. In it he praises the Creator for all the glories of creation, especially “Brother Sun” and “Sister Moon”.
