Glass with image texture on it

How can I make a glass flat 2d plane have a image texture over it that is visible and not all blacked out sort of like church stained glass

You can texture the transmission color. (should only be used on thin sheets of glass because this method doesn't create correct volumetric absorption).
The mesh should have a bit of thickness, though (e.g. use solidify modifier).
For thin sheets of glass you can enable the "Architectural" option for faster rendering.

The sun will shine right through perfect glass - try using e.g. sky as background light.
If you want the sun to be visible on the glass, you need to add imperfections, e.g. mix with matte translucent to simulate dust, or scatter some small particles over the surface.
