the measure of our character

The Christian-Islamic divide is huge, 
but there’s similarity, too.

Apostle St. Matthew had a habit of consulting the angels.

Italian master Caravaggio painted such a consultation in 1602.


That's when Matthew had his famous epiphany.

But a thousand years earlier (!)
Fourth Caliph in Sunni Islam Ali ibn Abi Talib 
had an identical insight, 
with angels also giving him guidance.

Ali said:

For all our difference, we are very much the same.
