  • Kim Sabatoni

    Kim Sabatoni said (2 Nov 2008):

    I couldn't help but think of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, when he prayed, "O my Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will."
    Jesus is referred to as the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5), and as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29). I found it awe-inspiring how your striking photo captured the essence of this profoundity.
