Visual Meditation

Looking at art works or movies is a great way to open ourselves to the meaning of the Gospels. Seeing can bypass our preconceived notions, giving us new vistas of enlightenment. With painting or sculpture one needs to sit quietly and absorb the dynamics of the piece. The drama of movies more easily engages us and offers a way to conversation about the Gospel with other members of your family.

This Sunday's Visual Meditation

ART WORKS

  • The image of Jesus with children is a favourite of many artists. This website (click red text) has drawn together a number of them. Note especially the paintings by Vogel von Vogelstein and Nicolaes Maes.
  • This painting by George William Joy of Jesus with the small child (click red text) shows a very diffident child that will need to be cajoled.

  • This painting of Jesus with the children (click red text) by Fr Jim Hasse SJ puts them in a modern context.
