"The Saint Who Wore Pink"
“The Saint Who Wore Pink,” like many of us, is caught between the physical and the spiritual.
She is in the physical world, but fish swim in the air around her. The fish are symbols of Christ and the blue outline denotes the spiritual. In her hat is a jewel that looks like the earth. It shows her mind is open to the cares and worries of this world. Even the color pink, which is a mixture of red and white, shows her duality. In her hand she carries a smart phone. It represents technology and the cacophony of demands and compromises the world brings. However, a butterfly has alighted on her hand. It covers the phone and is a symbol of the resurrection and renewal, so there is hope for all of us who have to function in the physical world that we may still be able to experience the refreshing of the spiritual world. “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” (Colossians 3:1-3) The time on the pocket watch marks the ‘eleventh hour.’ Our lives are short and we should not waste them worrying about things we do not have control over. We should “cast [our] cares on the Lord and He will sustain [us]; He will never let the righteous be shaken.” Psalm 55:22
