Stained Glass Flower: The West Rose Window At Chartes (1)

Meeting a stained glass window, like meeting a person, involves getting an initial sense of how it feels to be together. My heart beats faster every time I see the west rose window at the Chartres Cathedral.

My Prayer

God, I feel happy when I am around flowers. Thank you for this garden that is so full of beauty and life.

Scriptural Touchstone: 

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come… Song of Songs 2:12 (NRSV)

Invitation to Pray:

As you meet or remember this stained glass window, what prayers are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination? Pray them now.
