"Jesus answered, "I have not a demon; but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me.
Yet I do not seek my own glory; there is One who seeks it and he will be the judge.
Truly, truly, I say to you, if any one keeps my word, he will never see death.""

– John 8:49-51, which is part of today’s Gospel at Mass.

Focus on the central Crucifixion scene surmounting Comper’s exquisite Rood Screen in St Cyprian’s church in London.
