Quote of the day: 11 November

Because I have gone through Cubism and Surrealism, my Christ does not look like the other Christs, without ceasing to be classical. I believe that he is, at the same time, the least expressionistic of all those that are painted today. He is a beautiful Christ, like God, who is beautiful.

  1. OH WOW. This was on a Mass card I received recently, and hangs proudly in a retreat house I have attended, but I cannot remember which one. Delighted to have an electronic copy!!! Thank you.
