"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

  1. What in the heck is that supposed to be about?!? I know I'm from the South and Ignernt, but any work of Sacred Art that makes me need to take a Klonipin gives me devotional issues. Godamighty -- who's doin what all up in there?!? Our dear Lord is born, epiphanized, curcumcized, and baptized -- and child, my very last nerve is peeled and stomped. Pray that I may still be saved. (But I hate that painting!) Tell me you don't reject me, though, huh?

    1. Fr. Frank, I'm just going to have to unfriend you - just on Facebook though - Haha! I'm not on Facebook.

      I'm not sure Dali meant this as a devotional work per se - rather an epic image of the tremendous hopes VII held out for Church and the World.

    1. I should have sourced it. I came upon it a few years ago and was surprised to see it. I wish I could paint like this.

  4. Mt favorite part of the painting is the lower left hand corner. Every time I see the Master in that little corner I am reminded of the great Flemish masters. ^^

    Looking at any other part of this particular painting is just too noisy and busy for me.

  5. Never saw this one before. I had a wonderful book of Dali's work which I lent to someone and well, gone forever... There are many things beautiful about this. I really like most of Dali's work, except anything with flies in it. Gross. Do you know the title?
