Psalm: 104
Iconography: Christ, flanked by two nimbed figures, holds a book inscribed with the words Let the heart of those who seek our lord rejoice. Below, the psalmist points to the words of the book, encouraging the two weary and barefoot pilgrims who are seeking God. St Augustine commented that there are two lives for a Christian, one in pilgrimage and one in eternity. (AP, 244) The letter is being playfully attacked by a wolf and dragon.
