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