Caravaggio, again...

This evening I read a great post from eastangliaseminarians, who have a blog, which you can follow.

They are writing about The Calling of St Matthew by Caravaggio. Interesting to see that they are now being taught about this in the first year of seminary. It may be my great age, but I don't recall anything quite so exciting whilst I was at Oscott. Perhaps age does indeed addle the mind.

It is a wonderful image, full of catechetical material. One of my favourite sessions, using the Evangelium program (which has it's own website now) for our RCIA group, whilst on placement a few years back, was the class using this very picture.

Go read all about the master's work here.
