Thought on Thursday - February - 19/02/2009

There is a story told about Leonardo de Vinciís famous painting of the Last Supper. He searched far and wide for what he considered to be an ideal model for each person in the painting. For Jesus he began with a fine looking young man, full of life, very anchored and chose him as a perfect model of Jesus. His work on the painting took several years to complete. He left Judas till last and chose a down and out who was sleeping rough, who looked untrustworthy and who he felt might represent Judas. While the work was in progress de Vinci came to realise that this man had been in his studio before when he stood in as Jesus. He had gone astray, lost his way and was now a homeless man. It came as a great shock to de Vinci and a moment of conversion for him. We too can never presume anything with certainty about anyone. Life is fragile and so are we. No matter how strong on the outside we may seem, we are fragile and the only response is love and lots of it.
