Each Chapel meeting, we will explore the practice of Visio Divina, using an image as a doorway to listen to the still small voice within. For our first session, we turned to Holy Union by Mary Jane Miller, a Christian living in Mexico who teaches iconography classes.
In this process, we move from the literal to the symbolic to the mystic.
As you gaze at the image above, let your fingers trace the figure.What do you notice? Notice how the hands are crossed, how Christ's open book has the Alpha and Omega, but Mary's scroll is blank. Notice the colors, the shapes, the composition. See how many details you can observe. In your journal, list these under "I see..."
What does this image symbolize for you about who Jesus and Mary are?
Imagine that this image is one way the Divine reaches out to communicate to you.
Begin writing with the prompt, "What we want you to know is...."
If you are moved to share, please post what you saw, felt, received.
