Degas and Jesus Christ

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

– Edgar Degas –

What Degas speaks is true of art but in my heart it is also true of our commission in faith as followers of Christ.  We are called to reflect Him to those He draws us toward.  Every small and large thing we do reflects what is valuable to us to a world in darkness.  Jesus is in our hearts – is this what those in our midst see?  Do we reflect this without trying to do so?  Do they see Him when we don’t know anyone is watching?
