|Noli Me Tangere (Resurrection)-
Based on a painting by Florentine Renaissance artist Lorenzo di Credi, the window shows Mary Magdalene returning to the empty tomb and mistaking the risen Christ for a gardener. He holds a hoe in his right hand. When she then recognizes Him and reaches out, he tells her, "Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the father," and sends her to tell the disciples. The landscape features a palm tree, a symbol of victory over death, and Jerusalem is suggested in the background.
