Are you washed in the blood,

In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?

Are your garments spotless,

Are they white as snow?

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

"I'm not sure when it happened, but at some point in my life I was struck by the morbid quality of some of the images used in Christianity. And I guess I never got over it. It wasn't until adulthood that I became aware of the existence of stigmatists, people who reportedly carry the wounds of Jesus on their hands, feet, sides and foreheads. This idea fascinated me; that people can be so involved in their beliefs that they physically manifest symptoms of crucifixion. Call it morbid fascination, if you will, but I am definitely fascinated. While it may be unlikely that these people experience the ecstasy I would like to think they do, they certainly inspire awe and wonder in me."
