Christ, As A Poor Black Man on Death Row by Marylyn Felion


                      
Maryln Felion's painting, Christ As A Poor Black Man on Death Row, reminds me of Christ's words in parable: "
For I was hungry, and you offered me food. I was thirsty, and you brought me cold water to drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me in. I was without clothes, and you clothed me. I was ill, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me."

Those who heard these words were perplexed by them, and asked:
"Lord, when did we see you hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give you something to drink? When did we see you as a stranger, and give you shelter; or needing clothes, and clothe you? Did we ever see you ill, and take care of you; or in prison, and visit you?"

To this the answer came:"Truly, I tell you now, inasmuch as you have done these things for the least of my brothers and sisters, you have done the same for me."
