  1. I went to see the exhibit on it's 2nd day, magnifique! (I'm disappointed they don't you allow to take photos)

  2. It was very hard not to get on my knees. The Ecce Homo sculture is one of the most remarkable things I've ever seen.

  3. Father - I bought the catalog - it is $65 and worth it.

    Dymphna - I can imagine - the images are powerful sacramentals.

  4. I would love to go to Spain for Holy Week and watch these beautiful processions (not to mention the art!). My great-grandparents were from Asturias, so I still have plenty of relatives living there.

    Terry, did you say that there is a catalog one can purchase where the images of some of this art is captured?

    The book/catalog is available from the National Gallery online - check out the exhibit pages, "The Sacred Made Real" - the major works are included and the photography is wonderful.

  10. Thanks, Terry.
    I'm gonna watch it a bunch of times to help focus upon this Great Week.
    The statues are so incredible. They demonstrate such faith, love and meditation upon our Lord's Passion, our Lady's Sorrows.
