Photos: Favorite Churches

Stained Glass Window: Ste Mere Eglise

This is one of my favorite stained glass windows. While touring Europe, I was accustomed to stained glass windows with people dress in ancient costume. In this one, we see airborne soldiers dropping from the sky in uniforms from WWII. All this while, under the watchful eyes of Jesus and our blessed Mother.

Exterior: St Mere Eglise

This is the exterior of the village church of Ste Mere Eglise. This is one of the locations where the first US troops dropped into Normandy the night before D-day. They still have a simulation of the American Soldier that landed on the church and was stuck there while the village was still occupied by the Germans . You can see the parachute on the right side of the clock tower.
