Holy Church had some good news today.
Do you have good news of your own?
My good news includes the replacement of the Sabine electrical box, which was so eccentric that it was going to burst into flame at any moment. I will not die in a sparking inferno of electrical death … today, at least. Included is a surge protector that can take 150K joules. I am still getting my mind around that.
I also saw a cool sundog.
This is of The Last Judgment.
The detail is amazing, as we have come to expect from Mr. Mitsui.
Once again, this is a good print for one’s own reflection on The Four Last Things.
Note in this detail… sorry about the shadow… you see the damned. For you fans of the papal tiara a Pope is among them. Into the big crunching maw they go, to their eternal despair and agony.
The whole is set about with text from the Dies irae.
If you are thinking about gifts yet, you might consider Mr. Mitsui’s prints.
His religious art page here.
Beyond this, I must also thank some of you readers for this that have been sent me through my amazon Wish List. Among you benefactors are
TS for volumes of the English translation of the sermons of St. Augustine (ss. 230-272, ss. 151-183). TC send another volume (ss 2–50) SC sent The Old Mass and the New: Explaining the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI. I have a few more which I will get to soon.
Please know that these are all deeply appreciated, as are your donations through the button on the sidebar and on some posts. It is my duty and pleasure to pray for benefactors.
On Friday 22 October, I will say Holy Mass for the intention of benefactors, taking a list with me of those who have been so good as to send support in so many ways.
