‘O King of the nations, and their desire, the cornerstone who makest both one: Come and save mankind, whom thou formedst from clay’.
Here we are taken back to the first Adam, formed by God from the clay of the earth. In the image we have the second Adam, redeeming us all. The gaze of Christ is full of gentleness and compassion, drawing us into the kingdom of light and love. Let us draw near ‘with full assurance of faith’, trusting in His goodness, and may we know His blessing this day.
