30. St. Peter and Paul Church, East Harling, East window, Ascension, 1480.
Thus it is written that the Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.  (Luke 24:46-7)
After uttering reassuring words to his Apostles gathered around the Virgin Mary, Christ blessed them all before ascending into heaven.  The colorful harmony of the central portion of the window quickly attracts the eye’s attention.  The intimate connection established between Mary and Jesus at birth, continuously represented throughout the scenes of this window, is not dissolved by death.  The unique bond between a mother and her child never dies. As Jesus ascends into heaven, aglow in the light of divinity, Mary mirrors his grace with a similar, earthly radiance - the two remain forever connected.  The footprints on the rock between them further signify the permanence of the indissoluble bond between mother and child.
