Lutheran art quote of the day

“Jesus became the Man who Belongs to the World when the missionary journeys of his first apostles took them beyond Palestine, and then beyond Asia Minor, to the continent of Europe and to Rome. Twentieth-century European artists such as Georges Rouault have continued to search for a new idiom in which to express that universality, which has now encircled the globe.”

-Jaroslav Pelikan
