St. Meinrad Archabbey, Part 2

In Part 1, I had pictures of the Church at the St. Meinrad Archabbey posted.  In Part 2, I will focus on the windows.  And you get to play along as well!  I can't id all of the saints in the windows, so you can help me out!

According to the brochure, the windows were made in Munich, Germany and were installed in 1908.  The windows on the sides of the nave feature the Beatitudes.  The top portion depicts a Benedictine saint displaying that virtue with the bottom part depicting the corresponding scene from the Old Testament.  Then there are some words at the bottom, which are the full Beatitudes in Latin with the corresponding verse.

First the Rose Windows!
The Center is a hand with 3 fingers to represent the Trinity.

Going clockwise from the top:
St. Matthew, St. Mark. St. Luke, St. John
Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Jeremiah

Jesus, the Alpha and the Omega

Window above Main Doors:

Jesus, the Good Shepherd

For the following images, I've uploaded the full size images to flickr.  If you'd like to see them bigger, click on the picture and it will take you to flickr.
