Medieval artists at Chartres depicted Christ the Judge as the One who lovingly understood human suffering. When I contemplate Christ the Judge in the West Window of Chartres, showing us all his bleeding wounds, I don’t feel afraid, I feel grateful, understood and connected.
Thank You for understanding–everything.
The one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” Revelation 21:5 (NRSV)
Invitation to Pray:
Walk a labyrinth, or use a labyrinth pattern, to pray with your fingers or eyes as you consider this image of Jesus.
What prayers are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination? Pray them now.
