Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
Oi... I have enough problems getting the hang of meditation without you making it more difficult! That is seriously bad for the eyeballs (mine got slightly crossed when I stared at the picture trying to work out how that was supposed to be Jesus and Mary...)
i think it's 'c..p!' but have a feeling this won't get through Fr Tim's censorship!
Sorry father all i can see is a goats head after slaughter. Maybe i need help?
Aid to meditation??? Looks like something my kids will have left on the breakfast table for their mum to clear up!
It looks like the head of a goat taken through an orange colored lens. In a Church. Sick.
I think you'd call this"Make it up as you go along stations of the cross"The artist certainly did.
I feel like this every monday morning...I am sure the artist had the best of intentions it just came out wrong!
Good thing I meditate with my eyes closed!!!
These ‘stations’:::ahem::: immediately reminded me of a tragically laughable story about a stain down the wall of an underpass in Chicago, which, supposedly, according to the multitude of devotees who thronged to venerate it (I’m not kidding), looks like 'Our Lady of Guadalupe'!!! I also remember another venerated ‘stain’ this time on the side of a building, which, again, is supposed to show the outline of Our Blessed Lady. Completely baffling. However, it does show that there is some precedent for Catholics using incomprehensible rubbish for devotional purposes ;c). As for the ‘stations’ themselves, we can only guess how much the ‘artist’ charged for them! Talk about nice work if you can get it.And I got to use your suggestion, Fr. Tim re: putting links in the combox!! Woohoo!! I’m such a good lad I am =D
Its only the language of 20th century gallery 'art-snobbery' that maintains that a few blobs of yellow and orange watercolor paints can be reasonably employed as either fine art or worse, as 'meditations' especially for something like the Stations of the Cross.I am an artist. I went to art school where I learned all about art-snobbery posing as intelligent and rational thought. My professors bent over backwards to explain how childish rubbish created by the talentless or the tasteless was actually 'fine art' when it was in reality, rubbish. They used Big Words, and Gibberish Phrases in order to convince the ignorant that it was indeed Fine Art. I was not fooled. I could clearly see that the emperor was naked. This emperor is also naked. This is the kind of 'art' that belongs over a seat in the waiting room of a pediatrician to distract sick children. Anyone pretending that it is an aid to meditation on anything but the mess in a kindergarten paint corner is fooling themselves. One would be better off meditating on the Stations in front of a white wall than before a blob resembling the condiments mooshed on a McDonald's hambuger.Ugly as sin, sinfully ugly and a waste of sacred space and money.That's all this is.
I'm embarrassed to say it, but I think these are pictures of a hanky which I just my nose into. I wonder why it's hanging in a Church.
If you couldn't remember which was the next station you could just mumble something and continue and no one would know the difference!
This viewer was moved to tears also. St Joseph please intercede to your foster son for His bride the Church.
Tom - I deleted your comment as you requested. Sorry to take so long about it but I have been away without access to the internet. God bless.
