‘…Be Clean…’

From the Armadio degli Argenti of Blessed John of Fiesole, OP (Fra Angelico), c. 1450

‘… when you multiply prayer, I will not hear: for your hands are full of blood. Wash yourselves, be clean, take away the evil of your devices from my eyes, cease to do perversely, learn to do well: seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge for the fatherless, defend the widow.’

Isaiah 1: 15-17

    Angelico,
    I’m writing this the evening of Good Friday, having followed your Fr’Angelic postings this far. Thank you for bringing us transcendent beauty throughout the Triduum. You have brought me back to the glorious, heart-rending moment when I first gazed on a Fr’Angelico in person, at San Marco, the glory of it at first out of place in a humble friar’s cell–and then, not out of place at all.
    Buon pasqua!

      Beautiful, Peacock. Thank you.

  3. I’ve been writing about and posting Fra Angelicos paintings all week. When I first decided to do it, I was looking for something simple to do during the Triduum. It has rather exploded.

    I am presently staying in a hotel next to a very interesting but presently closed church whose tablets at the top and the fact that it is on Martin Luther King Drive or road remind me of the first Martin Luther although I don’t know the story well.

    It’s cold considering it’s a late Easter and I am travelling on Sunday and don’t want to upset the other passengers with sneezing.
