‘I have not turned away my face …’

From the Armadio degli Argenti of Blessed John of Fiesole, OP (Fra Angelico), c. 1450

I have given my body to the strikers, and my cheeks to them that plucked them: I have not turned away my face from them that rebuked me, and spit upon me.

Isaiah 50:6

    Two guards carrying on a casual conversation while the unspeakable cruelty goes on just behind them. Ah, Blessed Giovanni: What a keen eye for human nature!
