Back at St Norbert's

I stopped by St Norbert's to see it again by daylight. The windows are amazing. The organist was there and explained that the artist filled them with detail so that the monks could live with them for decades and still find new details.

The front doors:

The Blessed Sacrament Chapel:

Above the main doors, Christ and St Norbert:

The latest addition is a statue of St Norbert, newly carved in Oberammergau. The story goes that while St Norbert was celebrating Mass a spider crawled into the chalice. Norbert drank the wine and the spider and was miraculously unharmed.
