Judas' Pane

 

At the top of a cathedral stained glass window, the icon of Judas has suffered a lifetime of judgment. He has been endlessly ostracized by the eleven other, halo bearing, apostles, for his act of betrayal against Christ. Unsatisfied with his fate, Judas decides to re-visit his past in an attempt to right his wrongs, redeem himself with Christ, and receive the halo he has always lacked. During his quest, Judas discovers that contrary to the implications from the other apostles, no sin is greater than the next and that everyone has made mistakes in their past. Most importantly, Judas learns that it is never too late to start over.

They are two friends. One sees life in a positive light. The other is filled with dark negative feelings. He has no real aims in life. Only his music keeps him going. They meet one day in their usual place and have a profound conversation about the spiritual side of relationships and life. Sometimes serious, sometimes light, their conversation also explores what is hidden, dark and miserable about daily living. They come to know each other better than before. They develop a spiritual attachment. With that bond, they take their lives forward.
