Agnes and Agnus

Today is the feast of the virgin-martyr, Agnes, who is just one letter away from the Latin agnus which means "lamb". Oddly enough, in ASCII, this is a prime example of "a bit of difference" - or as our Lord said, the "smallest part of a letter", since:
"e" is 0110 0101, and
"u" is 0111 0101.
Very interesting.

So in honour of her feast, I thought I would post the third story of Sister Mary Gabriel, which is called Underpainting in Gray.

Wow ... wow.

I had never read any of these nun stories before, except one that was really a Joe story. Your style changes in these, and I think in a good way -- it's very nunly. It reminds me of real accounts that saints write of their visions: simple, descriptive, but humble and not putting on any airs.

Thinking about it, I think this may be my favorite of your stories I've read so far. Not the longest, but very Wow.
