It was originally titled The Angel of Corinthia. I had envisioned an angel reading St. Paulís famous text on
love to the Corinthians. The angel is reading it for the first time and is deeply touched. Part of the quote
from the Corinthians is, as if I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a
resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all
knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing...
