Saint Jerome, the Priest

This bronze statue, by Ivan Meštrović, is located at 2343 Massachusetts Avenue, Northwest, Washington, D.C. in front of the Croatian Embassy. Ivan Meštrović donated this work to the Croatian Franciscan Fathers, who commissioned it as Saint Jerome. Saint Jerome (341 – 420 A.D.) was born on the territory of modern Croatia. The inscription reads, “Greatest doctor of the church.”

Ludwig’s Monday Window Challenge

These are just a few selections from Saint Dominic’s Catholic Church located on E Street SW in Washington, DC. I’ll be posting more images of their beautiful stained glass windows over the coming days and weeks. Enjoy!

Besides the stunning display of stained glass, Saint Dominic’s contains Stations of the Cross that are truly lovely.
