Update on painting our Christchurch Oratory

Photos of the
Mother of Perpetual Succour Oratory, 
Christchurch, New Zealand.

 
 St Joseph's holy picture has been enhanced by its polychrome
surrounding and canopy.
The peculiar Star and Cross above the holy image are copies 
of the Holy Cross and Star
that to this day, in Bethlehem,
 commemorate 
the apparition of the angel to St Joseph in Bethlehem:
"And after they were departed, behold an angel of the Lord appeared in sleep to Joseph, saying: Arise, and take the child and his mother, and fly into Egypt: and be there until I shall tell thee. For it will come to pass that Herod will seek the child to destroy him."
Mt. 2:13

 The updated image of the work done behind the altar
and surrounding our Mother of Perpetual Succour.

The dedicated work continues...
Thank you Brother!

I have never seen a canopy for a holy picture, what a wonderful idea, especially when it's Saint Joseph. After all, he's a Patriarch!

What an artist! And what daring and innovation - yet the while retaining the ancient mystery and remaining traditional to a T!
