One thought on “B Easter 3, Art for April 22, 2012”
“Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 37 They were startled and terrified, and thought that they were seeing a ghost.” Luke 24:36-37
Thank you for choosing this painting to bring to life the words of the Gospel. I especially like that all 11 have a hand raised as if to ward off the ghost.
