Easter Day

Alleluia. Christ is risen.
He is risen indeed. Alleluia
Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ:
he has given us new life and hope by raising Jesus from the dead.

Resurrection Simon Dewey, 'He Lives‘
Resurrection Simon Dewey,
‘He Lives‘

This sort of realistic painting, showing a triumphant Christ, is disparaged by the Art cognoscenti, but it is very popular, and in fact Simon Dewey is one of the most visible religious artists of the late 20th century. Its message is strong and direct: Christ is risen, he is the Saviour. The stone is rolled away, and darkness and death are behind him.
