The Vocations Icon is the work of Sr. Marie - Paul, a Benedictine sister who lives in a French speaking community in the heart of ancient Jerusalem.
The centre of this icon is Christ whose hands are outstretched to us in a gesture of welcome. His bare feet indicate the Lord who 'is meek and humble of heart.' (Matt 11:29)
Christ's red tunic remind us of His sacrifice to the giving of His life; the sky blue remind us of His divinity.
Jesus right hand is raised in an ancient gesture of blessing.
An icon is always more than simply a picture. It is a window through which we encounter the divine. Click on the icon if you would like to spend some time in prayer.
