Blog Template Theology of the Body: MOBIA

Wednesday, November 08, 2006


... My crew and I attended a little soiree for the Museum of Biblical Arts in Manhattan last night; I am so excited about this wonderful little place! Their presentation and their collection are exquisite, and how cool to have such an excellent witness to the offerings of Christ and His Church in the heart of modern civilization. Most enchanting was their presentation on the St. John's Bible: MOBIA and its partners have commissioned the first hand-printed, hand-illuminated Bible produced in over 500 years, and it is nearing completion. I was able to see and touch a brilliantly perfect facsimile of one of the illuminated pages from the Gospel of John. The brilliant colors and attention to detail were enchanting.

In our current days of upheavals and emergencies, it is such a gift to be able to enjoy such lasting beauty, in celebration of something so lasting and beautiful. Be sure to check MOBIA out and learn more!
