Living With Christ--Painting for April -- April Fool's Snow
As I have mentioned several times before, I use the monthly missal, Living with Christ. Each month there is a painting on the front cover of the missal. This month's, April, uses a painting by Eugene Burnand. The painting is: The Disciples Peter and John Running to the Sepulchre on the Morning of the Resurrection.
The painting is below. I have often thought about these two running to the tomb to check things out. Peter is older than John-- often, John is referred to as the other apostle. John probably could out run Peter, but he waits for Peter. I find it rather easy to identify with this scene as I was a runner for a good part of my life as well. There is alot to meditate about and ponder in regard to what happened immediately after the Resurrection.
Definitely, it must have been very exciting!!
Today April 1st, we woke up to a layer of snow on the ground. Actually it was really very pretty.
In the photo below, eventhough there is snow, the grass is getting green near the abbey building.
