The Silent Women

20121127-165851.jpg

This reredos, or partition behind an altar, is at the chapel at St Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ypsilanti, where I visited a parishioner today. These figures, made by an artist in Ann Arbor, represent the six works of mercy mentioned at the end of Matthew 25. I saw them as the silent women keeping vigil in the chapel. Needing a time of silence myself, I sat with the silent women after my visit.
