Romans 12:9-13 rendered as an illuminated manuscript in the insular style, inspired by the Book of Kells (watercolor and gold leaf). The creation process requires focus and precision over several several hours, all while meditating on the text. I chose the Latin text for its concise beauty and semantic density; Latin is also closely related to my own thought and prayer languages.
The present participles in the Latin version of Romans 12:12 remind us that we can engage in these actions concurrently with all any other activity, especially while serving God and loving others in Christian community, as exemplified in the surrounding verses.
