Shrove Tuesday - Vigil of The Holy Season of Lent.

he Holy Season of Lent.

With Christ in the desert of prayer and fasting.
Dixit Jesus discipulis suis:
Cum ieiunatis,
nolite fieri sicut hypocritae, tristes.

Jesus said to His disciples:
When you fast,
do not look gloomy like the hypocrites.


This painting
by William Dyce in 1860
depicts Our Lord
in the wilderness of the Scottish Highlands
of our
holy diocese of Aberdeen;
where Dyce was born.

What a beautiful painting! I think Dyce may have belonged to the Pre-Raphaelites, a most interesting group of artists.
The image seems to strike home when Our Lord is seen to be in your native land and not His.
