  • The Calling of St. Matthew (1600) by Caravaggio

    Vendee Radio wonderfully describes this painting in the interview linked below. I recommend listening/watching, as it gives you a better appreciation for all the details presented in its contents (start at 43:32):

  • Medal depicting Girolamo Savonarola by Niccolo Fiorentino. Currently housed at the MET in NYC.
    I wish I could get a medal of this. The Triumph of the Cross is an outstanding work, which I'm finally getting around to reading now.
    "The declared enemies of God and His Church, heretics and schismatics, must be criticized as much as possible, as long as truth is not denied. It is a work of charity to shout: ‘Here is the wolf!’ when it enters the flock or anywhere else." -- Saint Francis de Sales

    "For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears:" [2 Timothy 4:3]

  • Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.
    -Geoffrey Chaucer
