Stained Glass Symbols — The Star

Star - Sacred Heart Catholic Church -  Wauzeka WIA Symbol of Christ’s Coming

In ancient Old Testament times, a prophet declared, “I see him, though not now; I observe him, though not near: A star shall advance from Jacob, and a scepter shall rise from Israel…” (Numbers 24:17) Later, a psalmist mused to the Lord, “When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars that you set in place—What is man that you are mindful of him, and a son of man that you care for him?” (Psalm 8:4-5) Then in the fullness of time, the God who cares for man and who set the stars according to His plan, gave a Savior to the world and announced Him by a star: “Behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, ‘Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.'” (Matthew 2:2)
