Devotion

I came across the following from the Rule of St. Benedict (AD 480-547).

Let us consider, then, how we ought to
behave in the presence of God and his
angels and let us stand to sing the
psalms in such a way that our minds
in harmony with our voices.
These thoughts on coming together for worship make me think of Psalm 63 illustrated here by Magrit Prigge an artist residing in South Africa.



Oh God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
You might think about these questions while examining this art:
  • What might this artwork's purpose be?
  • Do I recognize any images? If so, what?
  • What kind of lines do I see?
  • What kind of movement do they suggest?
  • Are there any visual metaphors in the artwork?
  • Does each visual metaphor look like something in or outside of the artwork?
  • What does this art mean to me?
