Adventures in Liturgy: Wedding at Cana images; Haitian art


Adventures in Liturgy by Edward Murray, Music Director

Today’s scripture reading, John 2:1-11, was, on the one hand, a relatively straightforward story of Jesus and his mother at a wedding in Cana, and on the other, a richly layered canvas loaded with nuances and meaning.  It has long been a favorite of artists.  Here are some of the images that appeared in today’s PowerPoint.

Unknown artist

The following image only came to my attention just before church and didn’t make it into the PowerPoint.  Very poignant, especially at this time, it is a mural of the Wedding at Cana from the Anglican Cathedral in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; all the characters in the painting are Haitian.
