Be Prepared

Some visual meditations from the Metropolitan Museum in New York recently caught my eye. One of them “Be Prepared,” by Constance McPhee is based on a drawing of the Wise and Foolish Virgins by William Blake and seems made for Advent. You may want to take a look.

So many visual presentations in the media today give a few seconds at most to something before they’re off to the next image. No time to linger over something. Guess that’s part of our hurry through life today.

Anyway, I like this:

    Dear Fr. Victor- Thank you for including the beautiful drawing of the Wise and Foolish Virgins. It must be wonderful to stand there and look at it. Gloria
