We visited St. Cecilia for the Good Friday liturgy this afternoon and used the WLP missalette to follow St. John’s account of the Passion set to dialogue. On the cover, I noticed a strangely beautiful painting of the Crucifixion. It’s by Albrecht Altdorfer of Regensburg, who evidently painted it in 1518 for the “St. Sebastian Altar” at the great Augustinian monastery of St. Florian in Upper Austria. If anyone has any additional information on the painting/altarpiece, I’d love to have it.

Note to Ms. Hunt: If you’re looking for young Catholics, go to St. Cecilia, where Fr. Weber immerses them in reverent liturgies, no-nonsense doctrine, and daily confession.
