This Lent Devotional focuses on Assereto’s Christ Healing the Blind Man. Just follow the link to find an analysis of the painting and a contemplation on the spiritual implications of the work.
Assereto was an Italian painter who was active in Genoa in the first half of the 17th century. This work features a dramatic use of light and a heightened emotionalism. I hope you enjoy the devotional.
