(St. Clare, Virgin)

The prophet Ezekiel had a vision of heavenly splendor, which he described as:  “something like a throne could be seen, looking like sapphire.  Upon it was seated, up above, one who had the appearance of a man.  Upward from what resembled his waist I saw what gleamed like electrum; downward from what resembled his waist I saw what looked like fire; he was surrounded with splendor.  Like the bow which appears in the clouds on a rainy day was the splendor that surrounded him.  Such was the vision of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.”  Ez 1:2-5, 24-28c
