From the Gospel reading at Holy Communion:

Jesus said “If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away; it is better for you to lose one of your members than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better for you to lose one of your members than for your whole body to go into hell.”
(Matthew’s Gospel, chapter 5, verses 29-30, NRSV)

I am always pleasantly surprised by the number of one-eyed, one-handed Biblical literalists I don’t see.

I know I’ve posted this glass (from the west window in St. John’s College chapel, Cambridge) before, but it is one of my favourites!
