O Christ, who by the thorns pressed upon thy head hast drawn the thorns from the sorrows of this world, and given us a crown of joy and peace: Make us so bold as never to fear suffering, nor to suffer without cheerfulness in thy service; to the glory of thy holy name.
#BookIllustrationOfTheDay is by Piet Worm for “Stories from the New Testament”. I adored these illustrations as a child because they were printed on GOLD! I thought they were very special. Worm was from the Netherlands, and I also love his gorgeous colour & vigorous line-work. pic.twitter.com/0ZOWchJFG0
