Burning Bush…


So, what to say of this banner?

It is a work of art, certainly.

It is a work of art which transcends the medieval style of its composition, although, the ‘S’ as an ‘eight’ and the ‘M’ as an ‘omega’ are remarkable.

The ‘lance’ too, as ‘crozier’, is a sublime touch.

Was the dragon always golden?

Does this hue, denote the beginning or even the end of a process?

Was the beast once much bigger?

Is this really how one earns one’s ‘spiritual wings’?

The spirals on the Saint’s shield are, to say the least, suggestive.

 But the burning question which most readily springs to our mind…

If we nearly missed this depiction can we hope to find the Archangel when it is being deliberately ‘hidden’?
