of the Past

Here, everyone is pointing. Mary points in wonder at the arriving magi. At the entrance to the cave, Joseph points the magi to Mary. On the left, a shepherd points upward toward the opened heavens. Above, the two middle angels point to the rays of God’s presence; the angel on the right points toward the adoring animals. The angel on the left points toward the manger, painted as the firmament dividing earth from heaven. The child Jesus, depicted as a mature seed, is the only figure not directing our gaze elsewhere.

It leads us to wonder – where are we pointing?

- Dr. Roberta Ervine

“The vineyards blossomed, and gave forth their fragrance. Rise and come, my Near One, my dove, my perfect one, and come, my dove, under the shelter of that rock, near the retaining wall.  Show me your face, and let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your face is beautiful.”

Song of Songs 2:13-14
