NotesThese two brilliantly colored stained glass windows are located in the Miraculous Medal Chapel. Set in the thick marble walls of The National Shrine, they seem to burst into living fire when the setting sun reflects their many hues. One window shows Mother Seton in a full length profile together with her title, Foundress of the Daughters of Charity. This is near the altar of St. Louise de Marillac. The other window near the altar of St. Vincent de Paul, represents Venerable Felix de Andreis identified as Father of the Vincentians Community in America.
