Friday 12th June - Icon of the Day


My soul honours your soul

I honour the place in you where

The whole universe resides.

I honour the light, love, truth

Beauty and peace within you

Because it is also in me

In sharing these things we are united

We are the same we are one.

- Origin unknown

The stone sculpture is a combination of two right hands, belonging to two different figures. It was entitled ‘The Ark of the Covenant’ before being renamed, very probably after the publication of Rodin’s ‘Les Cathédrales de France’ in 1914. Parallels have been drawn between the inner space captured by the composition and Gothic architecture.


In St Mary’s prayer cycle for June 2020, today we pray for those feeling isolated and lonely.
