Our Lady of Mercy Panel #13768
In 1218, the Blessed Mother appeared to Saint Peter Nolasco and asked him to establish a religious order to redeem Christian captives from imprisonment and in danger of losing their Catholic fath. The order became known as the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mercy, also known as the Mercederians or the Order of Our Lady of Ransom. The principal patron of Barcelona, Our Lady of Mercy is featured solemnly in this stained glass design. She holds the Mercedarian scapular in her right hand and the chains in her left hand. At the bottom of the panel shows a symbolic image of Christian captives' hands freed fom chains. Magnificent patterns and arched frames in blue make this a meaningful piece for any worship space.
