Mother of God

Prairie Stained Glass, Winnipeg

1999

The letters MP OY stand for "Mother of God" in Greek. In red and blue robes, Mary extends her arms. At her centre is an image of Jesus, indicated by the letters IC XC, Iesous Christos (Jesus Christ).

The larger Greek letters, Alpha and Omega, (which mean Beginning and End), are another appellation for Jesus.
