12 Reflections on Paintings for Our Common Home – Painting #4 “The Cosmic Supper”, and Reflection #4 “The Cosmic Supper”.
The Cosmic Supper
Human, birds and animals come together at the table of fellowship;
It is a banquet of love and fraternity.
The birds sing, the flowers smile, the trees dance.
Nature is the sacrament of God,
all living beings take part in it.
The seven people indicates the unlimited number, the open hand of Jesus is a sign of openness of inclusiveness.
There are no boundaries and fences;
All are invited at the table, the earth under the shade of the Cosmic Mother.
