POSTCARDS HOLY YEAR OF MERCY

POSTCARDS HOLY YEAR OF MERCY  

We continue to celebrate the Holy Year of Mercy now with a series of postcards showing mosaics made by Rev. Marco Rupnik, S.J., an artist and theologian from Slovenia, in collaboration with the workshop of the Ezio Aletti Studio and Research Center directed by him. The Center promotes intercultural reflection on theological, spiritual and cultural aspects of Christian civilization “in seeking a more profound communion among Christians”. On both theoretical and practical levels, the workshop aims to study and deepen knowledge of the union of art and faith, which reaches its highest expression in artistic creativity, where art is made not simply as a decorative element, but as an integral part of worship. The mosaics featured on the postcards draw on Gospel themes, including: the Healing of the paralytic (€ 0.95); the Healing of the blind man (€ 1.00); the Forgiveness of the adulterous woman (€ 2.30); the Healing of the man born blind (€ 3.00). The printed stamp reproduces the account of the descent into hell, while the enclosure features the deposition from the Cross (Pietà).
