Green is one of my most favorite colors.  I love looking at greens because they are so refreshing, and they have a way of clearing my mind from stresses and toxicities.  Green is the combination blue and yellow hues, the color of peace and joy respectively.  What a good combination to form this color that is so easy on the eye.  I love especially the shades of apple green, moss green and avocado green.

The picture here is a green vase / vessel / jar, displayed on a dividing wall in a fish restaurant in Athens, Greece – Psarades, meaning “fishermen”.

In the Bible, the Gospel of Mark describes that Jesus made the people sit on the green grass as he preached to them and later on, as he fed the same multitude with the loaves that miraculously multiplied.  That little detail of the mention of the color green adds so much to what was going on in this Gospel story, but I will let you just reflect on that…

This is my entry to Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: The Color Green.

  3. it’s a beautiful share of green, Fr. i always love green, it’s a very peaceful color.
    thank you for your invitation to reflect on that ‘green’ grass where Jesus made people sit for the multiplication of bread. i really never thought about it but i will surely ponder on its significance.
