Replacing glass in a divided light door?

We have original (1929) wood doors, with divided light. We have a lower square pane of glass (about 6" x 6" which is broken. Any ideas for how to fix this easily?

Thanks!

On the interior, you will find glazing stops that hold the glass in place. This will have to be carefully removed. I would start in the center of the piece and gently pry it out. If it is exterior, you will have to use glazing putty or a high end sealant to seal the glass to the wood.

Thanks Mike...I'll have to look at it in more detail!
