A book by J.J. Mueller, S.J. & Thomas M. Rochford, S.J.
The stained glass windows of St. Francis Xavier (College) Church narrate an extraordinary story of community created by the twelve Jesuit saints whose lives the windows celebrate. These Jesuits–professors, pastors, missionaries, writers and administrators–lived in different eras but pursued a single mission that the College Church and Saint Louis University continue.
The renovation of the church in the 90s and the subsequent cleaning of the windows revealed details in the intricate stained glass that had been obscured for decades and are still difficult to interpret without the insight into the windows that this book provides.
