The New Exodus -
Prints: Not available
As in the Passover and Exodus of the Old Testament, God's people must cross the desert toward the Promised Land. In the New Testament era, the "pillar of fire" is the presence of our Eucharistic Lord. In this painting, ominous storm clouds gather and an army approaches, intent on destroying the children of the new covenant. The people are in confusion and terror, but a priest lifts high a monstrance in which the Body of Christ is exposed, the Lord rallying to Himself all those who hunger for truth. Soon the light will scatter the darkness, divide the waters, and open an impossible path to the promised land of Paradise.
