For this month's angel, Rosemary writes:
On a recent visit to Granville, a lovely seaport town overlooking the English Channel, I discovered this trio of colorful angels illustrated on the stained-glass windows of the medieval Notre Dame du Cap Lihou Church. A master vitraillist, Jacques Le Chevallier, created them in the 1950’s to replace the ancient glass destroyed In September 1944, when two shells fell on the church square and blew up the old stained-glass windows. Inspired by the Cubist and Fauvist style, the angels form part of a series of windows found in the ambulatory of the choir and are dedicated to the life of Mary. This window depicts the Assumption.
An inscription notes that the angels rejoice and praise God, as Mary is lifted into heaven.
