Starting Pentecost Monday Off Right: Tongues of Fire Edition

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Pentecost, Jean II Restout, ARSH 1732, Louvre, Paris.

I have always loved this image especially for the Apostle in the foreground (perhaps Peter? It would make sense….), head bowed to the ground and hands clasped above his head in pleading fear.  One can only imagine how incredibly… intimidating this event must have been.


Bruce Jenner is a man. And furthermore I consider that islam must be destroyed.
