Spiritual Heritage in Glass: Flint Hills of Kansas
by LeRoy Walters

Aside from playing a rich part in the nationís history, Geary County takes no small pride in the tradition of stained-glass use among its well-renowned religious buildings, along with the proofs of faith interwoven in the stories that went with them.

St. Maryís Chapel, for instance, features a long standing Gothic architecture, with exquisite works of arts depicting the central messages of Christianity. Noticeable, of course, are the prominent use of stained-glass windows throughout the chapel, helping accentuate the overall air of sanctity and feeling of sanctuary for the churchgoers.

Apart from the interesting tales about the buildings themselves, LeRoy incorporates interesting historical pieces that should intrigue the readers about the subjects found in those sacred sites.
