A Painting Riddle
I thought I would relate something that really got my attention recently. I was looking through an art book and saw a painting by the artist, Annibale Carracci, an Italian Baroque painter from the mid 16th century. The painting is entitled, "Christ Appearing to Saint Peter on the Appian Way". The painting concerns an apparent vision that St. Peter had. It shows Christ carrying a cross and pointing toward the viewer. St. Peter, who appears startled, asks Christ, "Where are you going?" To which Christ replies,"I am going to Rome to be crucified again."
