Saturday's Masterpiece Dose - January 21st 2012

   Beauty of Christ   

"Sir, we would see Jesus." - John 12:21.

I have read that when Leonardo de Vinci was forty-three
years old, the Duke Ludovinco of Milan asked him to
paint the dramatic scene of Jesus' last supper with
his disciples.

Working slowly and giving meticulous care to details,
he spent three years on the assignment. He grouped the
disciples into threes, two groups on either side of the
central figure of Christ.

Christ's arms are outstretched. In his right hand, he
holds a cup that was painted beautifully with 
marvelous realism.

When the masterpiece was finished, the artist said to 
a friend, "Observe it and give me your opinion of it."

"It's wonderful!" exclaimed the friend, "the cup is so
real I cannot divert my eyes from it."

Immediately Leonardo took a brush and drew it across 
the sparkling cup! As he did he exclaimed, "Nothing 
shall detract from the figure of Christ!"

Prayer: "Our Loving Father in Heaven, please grant that
nothing I ever do or say will ever detract from the beauty
of Christ being seen in me. This I can only ever do with
your help. Thank you for hearing and answering my 
prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
