Is it just me or is our Lord pressing down on our Lady's foot as she crushes the serpent?

Nice painting, but the artist didn't know much about Jews.

The father of deceivers. We must do the same on the liberal pro-aborts like Keehan, CHA, Fr. Doyle from the National Catholic Reporter, Fr. Martin from The Jesuits' America. They're smearing Bp. Olmstead http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2010/06/fr-james-martin-fr-doyle-smears-bishop.html

Dear Rick

the likes of Sr. Keehan, Fr. Martin and Fr. McBrien are not our enemies; we need to pray and sacrifice much for our wayward clergy and religious

JustAnother... I was just picturing how Magdalene would have tore Judas apart after she learned that it was he who betrayed the Lord. She's no shrinking violet and her devotion to the only one who has loved truly might have led her to such righteous and even violent indignation.

The artists of the period weren't that hung up on authenticity, and didn't want to know anything about Jews (otherwise the "child sacrifice" myth would never have gained any traction).

Lovely painting. I shall put enemity between you and the woman and she shall crush your head with her foot.
Tommorow is my Consecration is it not providential that I see this the day before I become a slave of our Dear Mother.
