Blood had a mystical connotation to the ancient Hebrews that is a bit hard for us to grasp today, as we tend to see it scientifically in terms of its function to carry oxygen and nutrients to the cells of the body. But in ancient times, it was considered more like the life essence of a creature, second only perhaps to breath. We are "washed in the Blood of the Lamb" because nothing less than the very life of God was sufficient as a sacrifice to redeem us from our sins. This is as true today as it ever has been, and ever will be.

Per spiritu sanctu semet ipsum obtulit immauclatulatu deo is Latin which translates as, "By the Holy Spirit, he offered himself undefiled to God." Christ was God and at the same time Man, and as man, a perfect, undefiled man.

This beautiful picture is the Eucharist on the altar. It was done by Benedictine monks in the 19th Century in the school of art centered at their monastery in Beuron, Germany. The style is called Beuron (pronounced BOY-ron), and it was religious art deliberately distinct from anything else of the day. They used an invisible plan of triangles and circles (of which each piece has many intricately arranged) to achieve a platonic structure in their art. They were reaching for holiness and perfection to help the viewer in their worship and meditation of God. We hope that this restored picture helps you in your worship and meditation of our Lord.
