An end and a beginning …

The Alpha and the Omega, in a portrait of St. John Neumann in his hometown of Prachatice, Bohemia, Czech Republic. I joined a Neumann Bicentennial Year Pilgrimage in May honoring Neumann and another Redemptorist, Blessed Francis Seelos, who died in New Orleans in 1867. We also visited the birthplace of Seelos in Bavaria (southern Germany) and cathedrals, basilicas and Marian shrines in Austria and Czech Republic. The portrait was done after Neumann was named bishop of the Diocese of Philadelphia. … Having just studied Revelation with its Alpha and Omega theme, I thought this was a fitting segue to Year 2 of Catholic Biblical School. Two more photos to come.
