Torn Sackcloth

I kept coming across stories in the Bible where amazing people tore their clothes when they were in the presence of God. They wanted less of themselves and more of God. Total repentance brings us closer to our maker which in return gets rid of the burden of sin and let’s more of His glory shine through us. I also couldn’t get the story of the woman touching the fringe of Jesus and was healed (Luke 8:43-48). And the Roman myth or truth? Of St. Veronica who wiped Jesus face when on the road to crucifixion and his image was left in the cloth.  As I tore each clothe and let it flow organically on top of the panel I felt the power behind these stories.
