Bergoglio`s Vatican removes Holy Mary and St. John from the Crucifixion!

[Image: Art%20stamp.jpeg]
An ancient tradition in artwork whether in the east or west is the Crucifixion of Our Lord with Our Sorrowful Mother and St. John at the foot of the cross. All others, including St. Mary Magdalene are not depicted. The intent of this portrayal can only be to show the intricate connection between Our Lady and John and the words of Our Lord from the Cross, "Woman, behold thy son, John, behold thy mother."


Architecturally, this also was depicted in the ancient rood screen, so long lost in our churches.

The current degenerates and minions of Bergoglio in the Vatican have other ideas.

From Zenit:



Quote:The postage stamp issued by the Philatelic Office for the occasion depicts in the foreground Jesus crucified and in the background a golden and timeless view of the city of Wittenberg. With a penitential disposition, kneeling respectively on the left and right of the cross, Martin Luther holds the Bible, source and destination of his doctrine, while Philipp Melanchthon, theologian and friend of Martin Luther, one of the main protagonists of the reform, holds in hand the Augsburg Confession (Confessio Augustana), the first official public presentation of the principles of Protestantism written by him.
Bergoglio is attempting to destroy the Church. Why do we pretend that's not the case ?
This is the fruit of the ecumenism disaster. :@

Here at Fisheaters, we're not pretending. We're fighting back with the grace of God Almighty.
Terrible; the stamp shouldn't exist.
I don't mean to derail the thread, but why did they stop building the rood screens in churches?
No problem. I almost included my own thoughts on that. Rood screens were a feature of Gothic architecture. When it was succeeded by the Greco-Roman inspired Renaissance architecture which evolved into the baroque, rood screens ceased to be built. 

They were brought back during the Gothic revival in the 19th century. I can't say that I've ever been in a Gothic revival Catholic Church, but most of the Anglican Churches I belonged to when I was younger were built in that style, and did have rood screens. If you remember HK, the Harlequin King, here on the forum, he was a great fan of rood screens and of Augustus Pugin, the inspiration for much of the Gothic revival.

HK runs a great blog which discusses this sort of thing at Modern Medievalism.
Oops! I was so angry when I read this that I accused Calvin of being on the stamp. He's not. The other figure is Philipp Melanchthon, theologian and friend of Martin Luther, one of the main protagonists of the deformation,hol ding in hand the Augsburg Confession (Confessio Augustana), the first official public presentation of the evil, heretical principles of protestantism, written by him.
