The Christmas Story through Sacred Art

By Debby Giusti

I love sacred art. If you stop by the blog on Sundays, you’ve probably read the scripture I post along with a work of art from one of the Old Masters. The paintings allow me to meditate more deeply on God's Word and make the Good News come alive.

During the third week of Advent, as we prepare ourselves, once again, for the birth of the Christ Child, let’s reflect on the Nativity through the work of some of the world’s most renowned artists.

The Annunciation, Caravaggio, 1608, Museum
of Fine Art of Nancy, Franc. [PD-US]

The Visitation, Domenico Ghirlandaio, c.1491, Louvre, France. [PD-US]

Nativity, Sandro Botticelli, c.1473-1475, Columbia
Museum of Art [PS-US]

Adoration of the Magi, Bartolome Esteban Murillo,
1655-1660, Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo, Ohio. [PD-US]

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

With abundant blessings and much love,
Debby Giusti
