Roman Rite

Matthias Grünewald, Resurrection of Christ from Isenheimer altarpiece, 1510-1515

Happy Easter from A Conservative Blog for Peace
I chose this painting because like Olivier Messiaen’s music (for example) it’s traditionalist and timeless/cutting-edge all at once. William Blake’s art is similarly mystical and powerful.

The triple candle is also used at the Gospel reading in the Divine Liturgy in the Ruthenian recension of the Byzantine Rite
