RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK - Palm Sunday

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory A. Disney-Britton
"Martyrs (Earth, Air, Fire, Water)" 2014 by Bill Viola | USA
During Lent, we focus on core stories and practices of Jesus' ministry. Lent including this week's Holy Week is about disciplining ourselves in the way of Jesus. In 2014, Bill Viola created a powerful video altarpiece for St Paul's Cathedral in London that perfectly suits this week: "Martyrs (Earth, Air, Fire, Water)". Today is the beginning of the final week of Lent 2016. How will you focus on Christ's martyrdom?
