Feast of St. Moses




Yep, today is the Feast of the Roman Catholic saint who led the Israelites out of bondage in Egypt, received and transmitted the Law to God's people, and who testified to the true Messias by his presence at the Transfiguration on Mount Tabor.

(The image above is of the sublime statue by Michelangelo in the church of St. Peter in Chains, in Rome.)

St. Moses, deliverer of the oppressed, pray for us!

Highly recommend this piece from PBS on Michelangelo, especially his statue of Moses. Modern art historians now question if the final version of the statue of Moses wasn't actually a subtle protest against the Vatican and Roman Catholicism in general.
