Fragment of Isenheim Altarpiece, by Mathis Grünewald, 1512-1516

Unusually, John the Baptist is depicted at the crucifixion scene (unusually because he had been executed before Jesus’ death) – here he is, in his role as the forerunner of Christ, pointing to Him.

How can you point people to Christ? You are a living signpost to him.

I am now a junior sister in a religious order. The aim of this blog is partly to explain what is involved in this, and to journal my experiences as I move from the secular world to the religious life.
