photoblog image St. Mary as Pietà

St. Mary as Pietà

 

Tilmann Riemenschneider workshop  in Würzburg, Franziskanerkirche - I cropped this picture, because I found it too cruel to look at it.

 

...

Quis est homo, qui non fleret,
Matrem Christi si vidéret
In tanto supplicio?

 

Quis non posset contristári,
Christi Matrem contemplári
Doléntem cum Filio?

...

 

(Stabat mater, 13th century)

A mother's anguish..

But more than that, it implies, through doctrine, that our sins have died within the body of Christ
Philine: Yes, a well-known theme - yesterday I listened to a lecture about Notre-Dame in Paris and I saw the Pietà sculpture there, not destroyed by the fire last year. Many thanks, Chris!

The anguish in Mary's eyes is clearly evident here. It is good to learn that the Pietà  statue in Notre Dame was saved from the fire.
Philine: I am feeling the same like you. Many thanks, Alan!
