Chiesa Nuova/Santa Maria in Vallicella
The Santa Maria in Vallicella was a cathedral built by Pope Gregory I dedicated to Santa Maria in Vallicella. In 1575, construction of the eminent cathedral began, and the church was later consecrated in 1599.
Now I see balance in Peter Paul Rubens and "Peewee" Paul Rubens.If you look you will also.
In Genoa, Rubens painted numerous portraits, such as the Marchesa Brigida Spinola-Doria (National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.), Rome. During this period Rubens received, with the assistance of Cardinal Jacopo Serra (the brother of Maria Pallavicini), his most important commission to date for the High Altar of the city's most fashionable new church, Santa Maria in Vallicella also known as the Chiesa Nuova.
The subject was to be St. Gregory the Great and important local saints adoring an icon of the Virgin and Child. The first version, a single canvas (now at the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Grenoble), was immediately replaced by a second version on three slate panels that permits the actual miraculous holy image of the "Santa Maria in Vallicella" to be revealed on important feast days by a removable copper cover, also painted by the artist'
To the Church in Smyrna
“To the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These are the words of him who is the First and the Last, who died and came to life again. I know your afflictions and your poverty—yet you are rich! I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 10Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life. 11He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt at all by the second death.
Whilst St John was in exile on the Greek island of Patmos, he received divine revelation (Rev. 1:19). Christ dictated letters to him which were to be delivered to the ‘angels’— messengers — the bishops or ministers in charge of the seven churches, called ‘lampstands’. Revelation 2 contains the letters to four of them.
There is no doubt that the Christians in Smyrna found great favour with Christ. Nonetheless, these are powerful and difficult verses to read as He tells them of their future.
