New Mural for East London Church!
This month, parishioners of Eucharistic Heart of Jesus church in Cambridge, East London, arrived for Mass to see a new mural of clouds behind the old crucifix. Parish priest Fr Varghese Kannanaickal CMI explained that the white and red recall the rays in The Divine Mercy painting: the red for blood and white for water. The dark clouds signify the day on which Jesus was crucified, but in the distance towards Jerusalem the sky is clearing to symbolise Christ’s defeat of death and the hope this brings us. The brightness at the bottom of the crucifix indicates the resurrection of Christ: darkness will not prevail; dawn is coming and the brightness of the resurrection will prevail forever.
