Passage to Infinity

 

 

Last night, I watched the movie The Book of Eli. In this movie, it painted an apocalyptic world. The future is morbid, brutal and violent. In a harsh world, there is the only thing that can change the world, The Book that Eli carries, determined to bring it to safety as he was told by a voice to restore civilization. But one man, the villain, knows the power of The Book and wants it for himself.

The movie made me reflect on my brother’s latest artwork he finished on Easter titled: Passage to Infinity that his friend commissioned him.

The more I look at the artwork waiting for it to speak to me, I see the first chapter of Genesis painted by the Master Artist creating from the dark matter of emptiness he formed the Sun, Moon, Stars, and Earth. He saw that this was good.

“In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth … God saw everything that he made, and it was very good … On the seventh day, God finished the work, and he rested … ”

The story does not end here nor a further reflection on what this painting is all about. I would like to hear what his friend’s interpretation would be. He’s Jewish.

  1. Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen tells a true story of a Jewish Old Testament scholar. He studied the 456 prophecies from the book of Daniel. These prophesies were to be fulfilled by the messiah. He found that this person Jesus had fulfilled each prophesy both in time and place. The odds of this happening is in the millions of trillions. After his study was complete he became a Christian.

    • The Canticle of Daniel makes one fall in love with God and can’t help but become a Christian. First verse It goes:
      Bless the Lord, all you works of the Lord.
      Praise and exalt him above all forever.
      Angels of the Lord, bless the Lord.
      You heavens, bless the Lord.
      All you waters above the heavens, bless the Lord.
      All you hosts of the Lord, bless the Lord.
      Sun and moon, bless the Lord.
      Stars of heaven, bless the Lord.
