See the 'halo'

From the July 8, 2013 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


In many faiths, artists have painted or sculpted halos surrounding people, symbolizing a glow of holiness, or expression of the divine nature. Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Ruth, John, Mary, Paul, and, of course, Jesus, are a few of the people in the Bible’s Old and New Testaments who have been depicted with this “halo” of holiness and love.
