To promote a revival of beautiful Christian art in India, the Archdiocese of Bombay has held a seminar on stained glass windows in local parishes, called "Windows of Faith."
"Stained glass brings in an ambiance of prayerful atmosphere, fostering sacred meditative reflections, and recalling a memory of the spiritual history of the Church," said Father Warner D'Souza, director of the Bombay Archdiocesan Heritage Museum.
Fr. D'Souza spoke with CNA ahead of the seminar, which was held Sept. 22 at St. Peter's parish in the Bandra neighborhood of Mumbai.
"We thought of training priests and our community of lay people," he explained, "leading them to an awareness and a cognitive revival of Christian art in India."
