Am terribly saddened to hear news just in from the Bishop of California that two of the icons of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco have been destroyed.
I saw her every day when I spend three weeks living at Grace Cathedral last year. She always seemed to me to be particulary striking, serene and somehow unsettling. She was a bearer of the divine, in other words.
There are images which some people cannot bear. This proved to be one one such.
Mary Magdalene and John Donne – pray with us for a world free from violence, free from attack, free from fears within and fears without.
