“I would hope there is a place for the avant-garde in the same way I think there has to be a place—and we have to be careful with this—a place for Jazz and place for Evangelical and all of that. […] On theological grounds, I do think we need interaction with the culture at the level of high art or at the level of more commercial pop culture.”
— Fr. Anthony Ruff (22 June 2016)

Catholic Bulletin Art • Installment #68
published 28 January 2015 by Cynthia Ostrowski

T HAS BEEN my pleasure to post these lovely images, and I will continue doing so. But let no one think these downloads can replace holding the actual Jogues Missal in your hands. The entire book is a work of art, and its typesetting will astound you.

Today’s image (#68 BELOW) was not used in the Jogues Illuminated Missal because we found other images of a higher quality … but it’s still worth viewing. As those who’ve taken the time to read an English translation of HOSTIS HERODES IMPIE know, the Epiphany traditionally celebrated the Magi, the Miracle at Cana, and the Baptism of our Lord in the Jordan. This picture shows all three.
