Gerard Manley Hopkins

I read these lines by poet Gerard Manley Hopkins earlier this week:
For Christ plays in ten thousand places
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men's faces.

It prompted me to go through some magazines I had and create the following collage in my journal
As I was doing it, I realized that I have a much easier time seeing Christ in these faces than in the faces of people who cut me off in traffic, who speak too loudly on cell phones in the grocery store, or who make messes that I have to clean up.  Ouch!
