King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one; I died, and behold I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades (Rev 1:17-18).

A Blessed Easter to all!

  1. Stunning picture of the Risen Christ. I haven’t yet known it. I love it. Really beautiful. I am a fan of the Medieval iconography. It is so expressive. It is much more better than the modern art. I don’t like, for exemplo, Claudio Plastro style, cause it is a modern art style.

  2. Father, thank you for your good wishes for Easter. (Obrigado pelos votos pascais!) I wish you too a Blessed Easter! And I would like to ask to pray for me, fallowing the example of Pope Francis. I’m in need of prayers. Please pray for me. One more time thank for the beautiful post of East. It easely would be made an Easter Card! Pax et Bonum!

  3. Wishing you, Fr. Angelo, and all a Blessed and Joyous Easter Season! The Holy Week Liturgies that I attended were absolutely beautiful and the Churches are decorated so beautifully for Easter to celebrate our Risen Lord!

    In Christ,

  4. I can hear Handel’s famous “Hallelujah Chorus” from the ” Messiah” through your post (even though most people perform the Hallelujah Chorus at Christmas). Have a blessed Easter season. Ave Maria!

  5. Having missed the Octave, I wish you a joyful Eastertide! Thank you for the splendid mural detail! (Do you happen to know if those shapes on the Cross are crowns – perhaps in allusion to Apocalypse 6:2 and 4:10?)

    • Thanks David,

      Happy Easter to you as well.

      Here is a wider shot of the mural. I am not sure what the shapes are. Perhaps an allusion to 6:2 as he is surrounded by the four horsemen.
