"By the precious blood that redeemed you, by that loving death that restored you to life, I urge you to think of those ‘ancient paths’ by which our predecessors hastened to their rest with all the intensity of their spirit, and now reign with the Lord, for ever comforted in bliss and repose; all the days of pain with which God humbled them have now been turned to joy. When they lived on earth, it was for spiritual gifts that they were jealous; they thought little of themselves and scorned the world. It was the Kingdom they longed for, and so they were strong to endure hardship, enthusiastic for poverty, on fire with love" – Blessed Jordan of Saxony. Today (7 Nov) is the feast of All Saints of the Order, and this stained glass window is in the St Cecilia Chapel at the Motherhouse of the Nashville Dominican Sisters.
