St Francis painting

"Apotheosis of St Francis" by Michael Camilleri Cauchi
I share with you today a beautiful painting entitled  "Apotheosis of St Francis," by Michael Camilleri Cauchi, which is located above the choir loft in St Francis chapel in Rabat, Gozo, Malta. It represents the moment when St Francis of Assisi is seen entering heaven, greeted by God the Father, Jesus, Mary and various angels and saints. Click once on the image to enlarge and see in better detail this masterpiece. The artist painted many other religious and biblical paintings in several churches all around Malta and Gozo. Tomorrow I'll share a reflection on the life of our patron saint, Francis of Assisi.
