This picture is a reflection on 2 Cor. 1. 20-21

"For in him -Christ -every one of God's promises is a "YES"
For this reason it is through him that we say the
"AMEN" to the glory of God.
But it is God who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us."

The hands in this picture form a "Y"

This represents YAHWEH and his "YES" to his promises of salvation

The "Y" formation is repeated in the crucified Christ's body,
with its raised arms, as he says, "AMEN," "YES"
in obedience to his Father's will.
I have tried to express the determinaton that required, as the crucified Christ fixes his eyes intently on the "YES" of his Father's loving, supporting hands.
With and through him we say "YES" to our salvation.

In the "Our Father" we pray, "Thy will be done."
We place ourselves in God's hands, trusting in his wisdom and love.
That's the hardest prayer to really mean.

Isidore O.P.

Next week's picture and reflection will be about the Exaltation of Christ Crucified.
