Do you hear that sound?

(Larger version on Flickr here.)

While waiting to talk to a couple about their marriage ceremony recently I had a few moments to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet of my surroundings.  The church interior was very dim but this only served to highlight the beautiful stained glass all the more.  I reached into my bag for the camera and took a few pictures.

The one above is on the south side of the building and has the title “EGO SUM LUX MUNDI” (I am the Light of the World) .  It reminds me of the famous painting by Holman Hunt (there is a stained glass representation of this painting at the church in Clonakilty – a subject for another day).

The title of the window comes from Jesus’ words as recorded in John 8:12

 I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

The knocking on the door image comes from Revelation 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

The door in the picture represents the human heart – Christ knocks gently – do we hear it – will we open the door?

  1. you’re on a roll Daniel (sort of a pun, referring back to the dark and distant days when films came on rolls!). keep it up!
