The stained glass window over the altar was made by the Louis Tiffany Glass Company of New York. The subject: "Christ blessing the little children," was taken from an oil painting by Flandrin (online Jan. 2021). Christ is depicted sitting on a step before an oriental building, looking with loving eyes at a group of children. He is touching the tiny hand of a child, who is gazing at him with wonder.  Biblical inspiration:  Matthew 19:14: "Suffer little children to come unto me."
