Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time ~ 17th/18th August 2019
The Martyrs’ Painting
This painting hangs in the chapel of the English College in Rome. It was painted in 1581 at a crucial time in the history of the college and of Catholicism in England. The mediaeval Hospice had just become a seminary. England had become Protestant and Catholic priests had to be trained abroad and risk martyrdom when they returned to England. The painting shows two English martyrs from English history, St Thomas of Canterbury and St Edmund of East Anglia. But at the centre is the Holy Trinity. The Father holds his crucified Son whose blood is falling upon England. An angel holds a scroll bearing the words of Jesus recorded in today’s gospel: “Ignem veni mittere in terram”, that is ‘I came to cast fire upon the earth.’ Flames are erupting from England where the Lord’s blood falls.
Response to the Psalm: Lord, come to my aid!
