Encouragement for preachers …

For those called to bear witness to the Word of God, and/or who might be preparing sermons for this Sunday, and/or who just haven’t happened to get around to visiting the Musée du Louvre lately, here’s some encouragement from the left panel of the Braque triptych by Rogier van der Weyden (1399/1400–1464):
‘John the Baptist’, oil on panel (41×34 cm) — ca. 1450
The words read ‘Ecce Agnus Dei qui tollit peccata mundi.’ (Behold the Lamb of God that will take away the sins of the world.) If you’re curious, centre panel and right panel here.
