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...
