Thought of Saint Augustine
Past and present I find in all movement of things; but it is not so in the Truth that remains forever; I only find the present in her, and this is incorruptible; this cannot be said of creatures.
(In Io. Ev. XXXVIII, 10)
If you are the Body of Christ and its members, it is your mystery that is placed on the Lord's table. It is your mystery that you receive. To what you are, you respond «Amen», and by responding, you become part of it.

Caravaggio on Augustine


United Kingdom
A new discovery of an old work of art.

Art experts have determined that a painting of Saint Augustine recently found in a private collection in Britain is actually a work of the famous artist Caravaggio. The painting is a rediscovery from the collection of the artist’s patrons, Cardinal Benedetto Giustiniani and his brother Marchese Vincenzo. A label tucked in the back of the stretcher revealed the name of the heir to the collection in the nineteenth century.

The painting has been requested for the exhibition Roma al tempo di Caravaggio at Palazzo Venezia, Rome, from November 10, 2011 to February 5, 2012.
