probably 1860s or 70s

Two-light window. Jesus walks on the water holding his hand out to St Peter, while other disciples look on from the boat.

technique: stained glass

firm/studio: William Wailes

Fisherman's Chapel, Angle, Pembrokeshire
east wall

Inscription: Lord help me for I perish. The passage is Matthew 14:24-33. The words"for I perish" have here been added to Peter's cry in v.30.

An appropriate image for a Fishermen's chapel. The figure of Christ is seen walking on the water, reaching out to the sinking Peter. (Matthew 14:30) As with the stilling of the storm window in the same chapel, the message is the necessity of faith, even in the face of adversity.
