saints and angels

A visit to Coventry yesterday included a wander round the Cathedral. I was particularly impressed with the West Screen which included inscriptions of angels and saints on the glass. This window is also the link between the old and new cathedrals affirming the continuity of Christianity down the ages. It reminded me of the line “ever old and ever new, keep me travelling along with you” from Sydney Carter’s One more step along the world I go. Above is a photo of the West Screen window. I have adapted the image slightly. It is taken from the outside of the new cathedral looking in. The area of white in the middle is a reflection of the sky above the old cathedral ruins. The flash in the pane above the centre door is my camera!
