This week, Baya Clare, a Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet invites us to contemplate two beautiful images.
This week I'm going to fill up your senses with two beautiful illuminations. Again, I'm not going to say much about their origins until next time. I want you to get to know these works on their own terms, unburdened as much as possible by what our culture might tell us to think and feel about them.
What I will say is that one is about the creation of the world. The subject of the other is Leviticus 19. The latter seems like something we especially need to be reminded of at this time.
I encourage you to spend time meditating on these two images. Do you like them? What do they open up in you? How do you feel?
Try making them your prayer this week.
