Shining a Light on Halos
Glory is often equated with radiance, and that is not simply a romantic idea. Glory is something God emanates; therefore, envisioning glory as a radiant quality makes sense.
The artistic invention of the halo became a way of signifying the hallow-ness of a life that participated in making the greater glory of God known on earth. This emanation of light was often drawn as a circlet, but also took other shapes. A triangular halo was used to indicate God the Father, and sometimes the infant Jesus—a reminder that he remained part of the Trinity even through the journey of Incarnation. A square halo over a person’s head implied sainthood in the making.
A full body halo, as we see in portrayals of Our Lady of Guadalupe, was reserved only for Jesus or the Mother of God. Not every human life could reveal that much glory!
