“Christ & Adam at Chartres.  This is a stone carving over the north porch of the cathedral of Our Lady at Chartres, so small and among so many other carvings one has to look carefully to see it.  It is for me one of the most powerful religious images I know of.  Creation as an act of love.  Adam (and thus all of us) bearers of God’s image.”  (Jim Forest)
