Weekend Rerun: Easter in Art

The 5th Sister will be taking the Easter weekend off from blogging. Instead, please enjoy the artwork that was used, with the artist's permission, in last year's Easter post. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Today's post will feature the beautiful and stunning art of Michael O'Brien. Michael is an artist and renowned essayist. His welcome statement, from his website, includes the following excerpt:

"In all my work I seek to contribute to the restoration of Christian culture. I try to express the holiness of existence and the dignity of the human person situated in an incarnational universe. Each visual image and each work of prose is an incarnation of a word, a statement of faith. At the same time, it asks the questions: what is most noble and eternal in man? Who is he? Why does he exist? And what is his eternal destiny? "

In Gethsemane

Betrayed by a Kiss

Peter's Denial

Jesus Condemned by Pilate

The Flagellation

The Crowning With Thorns

The Crucifixion and Death of Jesus

All works are copyrighted by Mr. O'Brien and are presented here for the glory and honor of our Lord Jesus Christ. For further information regarding Mr. O'Brien's works of art, articles and essays, please visit his website at
