Happy Easter

The Resurrection of Christ from the west wall, Church of St Mary, Chalgrove, Oxfordshire, England.

This church was on my visiting list last summer when I drove through some of rural England. Alas I never reached it. Maybe this summer.

The Church of St. Mary is famed for its magnificent medieval wall paintings, which date from about 1330. As throughout England, these murals were whitewashed over at the Reformation and lie hidden for centuries. They were rediscovered and restored in 1858 during a period of renovation.

A Resurrection poem: Descending Theology: The Resurrection by Mary Karr.

Happy Easter everyone!!
