John LaFarge at Boston College

Worth a trip to the    McMullen Museum, Boston College
                                140 Commonwealth Ave.
                                Chestnut Hill, MA 02467

if you want to experience first hand the magnificent stained glass windows -- three of them -- by John La Farge, (the style very different from those by La Farge at Trinity Church in Boston -- see Marash Girl, Sunday, April 29, 2012, "Sidetracked: Trinity Church, Boston").   Thank you, William (BC '74) and Alison Vareika, for donating  these stained glass windows which "represent Christ Preaching, St. John, and St. Paul. Together the windows exemplify the gospel of Christ and its dissemination to the Jews and Gentiles. St. John represented the mission to the Jews, and St. Paul was known for preaching to the Gentiles."
