I presented to you some pictures a week ago,
taken at St Peter Apostle Church,
and today is a continuation on the same theme.
"The Usual Suspects".
I had told you I had photographed many stained glass windows over there.
I removed the background and kept only the different personages in a single line-up.
Let me introduce to you:
St Vincent de Paul,
St Francois de Sales,
St Louis de Gonzague,
St Francois Xavier,
The Virgin and the Sacred Heart,
St Peter Apostle
and St Rose de Lima and the Shroud of Turin.
These would have been heroes of some kind to some people,
regarded highly as role models.
our superheroes are completely fictional.
Is it that we lack proper role models in real life
and we need to invent a new mythology to fill in the gap?
As far as my concept goes here,
are they looking down on us
or with condescension over our human turmoils,
our flaws and defeats?!?
All I can say about sainthood,
in my own humble opinion,
is that it seems a rather simple thing to achieve,
given some recent decisions by the Vatican,
some I would tend to disagree with...
I'm not even Christian!!!
But I am still entitled to my opinion...
I'll just keep making pretty pictures.
Still is what I do best!!
