Fra Angelico’s ‘The Entombment of Christ’

Fra Angelico's "The Entombment of Christ" places us at the tomb as those who loved Christ and were loved by him prepare his body for burial. Christ's pallid body, cradled in burial cloths, is suspended off the ground between two men tenderly carrying his body toward the tomb.

Easter’s light overcomes darkness

Editor’s note: Although the suspension of public Masses continues across the Diocese of Evansville and much of America through Holy Week, Easter is not cancelled. Catholic News Service provides the story, Easter's light overcomes darkness, to assist us in commemorating the Paschal Triduum – Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection. Please note that the opening procession the story describes will not occur this year due to the suspension of public Masses.
