Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! Here are a few murals to reflect upon this Christmas Season from churches in Texas. Church murals are always the most beautiful and spectacular to see. These could be in Europe but they are a wonder right here thin the States in Texas.
This church could be in France. It reminds me of Abbaye Senanque with it’s bluebell fields instead of lavender.
Another more contemporary style mural is the “Pencil Madonna” as she is affectionately called, painted behind the altar in Our Lady of Sorrows Parish in Farmington, Michigan, in 1961 by Jean Charlot. The arrow highlighted by the roofline is sublimely suggestive, pointing upward and the colors are very unique.
The dingy murals at Saint Dimitrija church in Skopje, Macedonia are getting brighter with self-illumination and without any plausible explanation — could be a mysterious miracle. Thousands have gathered to see them change. You may not understand this video but the pictures tell the story.
Non-church related….If you happen to see The Hobbit movie over the holidays, when and if you are in NYC, check out the massive mural as well.
