As some have mentioned, it is the Eye of Providence or All Seeing Eye of God. In this case the triangle may represent the Trinity. However, as others also mention, the eye symbol originated in Egypt - as did many of the legends that are now included in the Bible.

What a small world,

I had my first communion in the church OP took pictures of.

by no means do i still attend church, this was many years ago.

however that picture in itself is quite amazing i never noticed it being there.

just goes to show you how powerfully symbolism has been enforced across the globe, from Egypt to Europe to Ontario Canada.

amazing find.

But I dont think this should be in a Christian church which I'm sure everyone would agree, unless I'm missing something here

I think that you're missing something.

One of the major ideas of Christianity is the tri-unity of God. Often times, the trinity is symbolized by a triangle. As for the eye in the middle, it's most likely a symbol of God's omniscience.

There is nothing big here. Whoever made that stained glass window was using a triangle and an eye to symbolize God.

I'm more concerned about the guy in the pope hat bashing in that poor peasant's skull with a rock.

It, to me, actually looks like he's pouring water on his head. On the one side of the priests hand, there is a brown thing, possibly the bottom of a jar, while there is a blue coming out from the bottom of the priests hand is a different blue than the rest, possibly water.

Havent read entire thread, but it is interesting that the Saint's Bio reveals him to be almost Gnostic in his approach within the Catholic Church.

He almost seems to be advocating, and practised the "Diety" Yoga type of prayer, and want all to realise Christ Consciousness themselves,

What Saint Eugene wanted to achieve was that, in Christ, each individual could become a fully complete person, an authentic Christian, a credible saint.

Great first thread OP

WoW

What I just came up in the past 20 seconds:

The elites are our "God"

They control us through religion and economics.

Good find, makes perfect sense. I'm pretty sure that those that brought us 9/11 and other world-controlling (brainwashing) events also bring you the Catholic religion (control).

Not that I am a science purist (although a definite atheist) when I look at the evidence of 9/11 I see as much evidence supporting the official story as I do supporting god. eg none.

This is very interesting, but at first glance i'd say it represents gods all see'ing eye

The all-seeing eye bears no resemblance to the Eye of Heru (Horus).
In the case of the stained glass, it is the eye of Jehovah.

There is nothing godly about that symbol.

It is, as other posters have pointed out. The symbol of control.

Sorry but this is too new to call it a conspiracy.
Any conspiratorial ties is probably copy cat coincidental.

Ex:
priest: We'd like to commision you to create stained glass artwork for our new church and be sure to include the eye of providence.
artist: What's the eye of providence?
priest: You know, like in the US dollar bill.
artist: Uh, OK.

Jehova, or Yahweh. Yahweh is the name of the Almighty Father in Heaven that people commonly call "The LORD" or "God". The reason we see "LORD" and "God" in our bibles is because of a Jewish tradition that the name Yahweh was not to be spoken for fear that the name be blasphemed. This is four Hebrew letters (Yod, He, Waw and He) called the "Tetragrammaton". The four characters are the four Hebrew letters that correspond to YHWH and are transliterated IAUE or Yahweh.

I think Amun was the Egyptian god of creation.

Amen is supposeldy handed down from Amun, or a carry over into Christianity.



Atum was the god of creation in the Heliopolitan religion of ancient Egypt he is said to of ejaculated the universe into existence.

I am not trying to be disgusting, please research!!

Sorry but that is ok, the All-Seeing Eye has been used for hundreds of years as a symbol for the Christian God, so nothing strange going on there.

The symbol means whatever the artist and the church that commissioned it intended it to mean. In this case, in a church, it is the Eye of God watching over the church. The triangle is the Trinity. All of which makes perfect sense in a Christian Church.

To think that because an eye was used in the Eye of Horus that all subsequent usages of an eye in a symbol refer to it is ridiculous on its face. To think that because the All Seeing Eye was used on a currency that it is anything more than decoration is good fodder for interesting movies, but silly all the same.

Allrighty, and welcome to your first thread! Good job and thank you SO much for actually providing photos WITH the thread opening. So often we hear of a "pending" conspiracy with photos to follow and then several pages later.......... disappointment. Well done!

Okay, I read your whole thread just to make sure I wasn't repeating information. More than the all-seeing-eye, what interests me is the two fellows at the bottom of the stained glass. Now, it's entirely possible that I'm seeing what I want to see, however, the guy on the left bottom looks to me to have a Templar cross on his chest. The guy on the right, with just a tad of imagination, looks like he might be wearing chain-mail and adorned in Templar colors. NOW...... if that's a possibility, and add that to the already identified Eye of Providence.....

Dang, you know, you might need to start exploring the basement for the opening to the secret catacombs that lead to the GRAIL!

Okay, that last bit was over the top, but I think I really do see Knights Templar symbology, PLUS, the guy to the right of the ?woman? has a staff with a spiral on it, ending in a star. cool stuff. I think I'd like to go to your church.

Wouldn't it be funny if you found out they intentionally had that stained glass created to draw in conspiracy theorists?

this is a symbol that has alot of different meanings! it is derived from ancient sumeria not eygpt....it was used by sumeria(ancient babylon) then eygpt then rome then america...these are the 4 beast it speaks of in the bible.
well id say america is the the cap stone of the unfinished pyramid along with the eu and others...this symbol has an evil meaning behind it along with several other good meanings but the root meaning is good not evil...it means the illumination of spiritual knowledge, thats why when jesus was baptized he was then illuminated. the baptism symbolizes rebirth into into spiritual knowledge it also symbolizes the winter solstice and death of the sun at 12:00 noon on dec 21 because it is farthest away from the earth and at its lowest point then rises after resting for 3 and a half days in the southern cross constellation then rises 1 degree which symbolizes rebirth of the sun on the 25th. thats why we celebrate christmas. jesus is not the only one with this same story though its also derived from sumeria first, then copied by the elite to confuse through religions and to hide its true meaning. The true story symbolizes humanities struggle through time to find The true God again. The Creator left clues and signs in the stars to let us know we will be reborn into spiritual beings again the elite just want to keep us from the knowledge of our true nature and make us feed on our enlightened animal nature! Not for to much longer though...
