Visions of Mary (4): An Angel’s Point of View

Perspective matters. What if you saw from above, instead of from below?

My Prayer:
God, help me to have a new perspective. I need it!

Scriptural Touchstone:
The hearing ear and the seeing eye—God has made them both. Proverbs 20:12 (NRSV)

The Chartres Cathedral labyrinth

Invitation to Pray:
Do you sense that you can’t see what you need to see? Ask for God’s help! What prayers are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination? Pray them now.

These images were all taken Chartres Cathedral in France. The photograph above is found in the front matter of Visions of Mary (page xi).
