With Jenny at Suscipio. Moments of Grace can be found not only in words, or the work of God in our life but in art, any art but for me especially in religious paintings, icons and stained glass. This painting of the Trinity, represented as a ‘Mercy Seat’ is found in the refectory of Santa Sabina in Rome. I adore this image also means God is Love. It appears to be modern, yet is in the refectory of an ancient church in Rome.
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. For grace and the gift of the Trinity are given by the Father through the Son in the Holy Spirit. Just as grace is given from the Father through the Son, so there could be no communication of the gift to us except in the Holy Spirit. But when we share in the Spirit, we possess the love of the Father, the grace of the Son and the fellowship of the Spirit himself” – St Athanasius.
