Blessed Sacrament procession at Louviers c.1500

This magnificent window at the Church of Notre Dame in Louviers, France, was made in 1490-1500 and depicts a Blessed Sacrament Procession accompanied by various candle-bearing tradesmen.

Simon Cotton, an Anglican who is part of Forward in Faith, has a short article about the window in the June edition of New Directions (page 35). He ends with this quotation from the Curé of Ars:
"When we go before the Blessed Sacrament, let us open our heart; our good God will open His. We shall go to Him; He will come to us; the one to ask, the other to receive. It will be like a breath from one to the other."
The issue also has an article by Joanna Bogle reflecting on a difficult year for Catholics and the hope offered by Anglicanorum Coetibus.
