RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory Disney-Britton
In Mark 12:31, Jesus says "Love your neighbor as yourself" is the second greatest commandment. This week, voters in Ireland stood with their gay neighbors and sent a message to the world about Christian love, loyalty, and friendship. From Hozier's "Take Me to Church" to Joe Caslin's embrace murals, Irish artists helped inspire this sweeping victory for marriage equality. It is in that spirit of Christian love, that "The Claddagh Embrace" (above) by Joe Caslin is my NEWS OF WEEK.
