Journal History

  • Listening to: "Victimae Paschali Laudes"
  • Reading: Summa of the Summa
  • Playing: Medieval II:Total War

"Let Christians offer sacrificial
praises to the Paschal Victim.
The Lamb has redeemed the sheep:
The Innocent Christ has reconciled
the sinners to the Father.

Death and Life contended
in a spectacular battle:
the Prince of Life, who died,
reigns alive.

Tell us, Mary, what did
you see on the road?
"I saw the tomb of the living Christ
and the glory of his rising,
The angelic witnesses, the
clothes and the shroud."

"Christ my Hope is arisen;
into Galilee, He will go before his own."
We know Christ is truly risen from the dead!
To us, victorious King, have mercy!
Amen. Alleluia."

~ Victimae Paschali Laudes


Salvete all!

"Life and death have fought in a marvelous combat..." Easter is the greatest feast and solemnity of the whole liturgical year and it's a time of great rejoicing for Life has triumphed definitively over death! "For we are an Easter people and 'Alleluia!' is our song!" (Saint Pope John Paul the Great). I just want to wish you all a most joyful Easter Season! Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed! God bless you all! :hug:

Impossible Altruism by IosifChezan


Theophilia's Profile Picture
is of the Popish Persuasion
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
I'm just an aspiring artist from the lovely Mitten State. I'm a Roman Catholic who loves the Faith and everything pertaining to it (especially its philosophy, theology and history!). Like everyone else, I have an insatiable thirst for the Three Great Transcendentals: the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. I make art because I simply enjoy doing it. Historical and theological themes and subjects are what fascinate me the most, and I think that the human figure in particular is one of inexhaustible beauty. The Incarnation of Our Lord, after all, changes everything. For that reason, I also love to depict Our Lord and Our Lady, because they are the summit of human perfection (being the New Adam and new Eve and all that. ;-)) and therefore are my favorite subjects to depict. :meow:
