72- Painting My Lords Facial Features

 

 It was once said(4) that Leonardo DA Vinci, the artist, was preoccupied with the painting of the Holy Supper when he scolded someone in conflict with him over some matter. After that person had left, the artist was so hesitant and nervous that he could not paint any longer.

 He was very embarrassed so he threw aside his painting materials and caught up with the man to render him an apology. After making up, the artist was filled with peace and started to paint the joyful portrait of Jesus Christ.

 Likewise, we cannot reflect Jesus' picture in our lives if we are filled with anger. Who can present an icon of Christ, the peacemaker with God, when he is full of hatred and anger?

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: لأرسم ملامح وجه سيدي!

Let Your Holy Spirit hold its brush.

May the greatest artist paint His living icon in me.

Cleanse me from all anger through repentance.

Provide me with Your love and Meekness.

Renew my nature and thoughts

To become a true icon of Jesus.

How Unfortunate It Is To Become Angry!

How easy it is to become angry!

However, to be angry for a good reason,

For the right duration

At the right time

In the right manner.

This is not easy.

How difficult it is to become angry in the right way!
