Psalm: 103
Iconography: Christ walks upon the wings of the wind, personified at the bottom of the letter. He blows onto a naked body which he holds in his hands. God's breath transforms angels with the power of the holy spirit. Who walks upon the wings of the winds. Who makes your angels spirits:
Art: There is a barely visible drawn line between Christ's and the angel's mouths.
