“The Burning Supper” Cathedral of St. Jacob in Innsbruck

"The Burning Supper"

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's painting "The Last Supper" I will gather thirteen people at the brightly burning table, twelve men and one woman. This "fiery staging" the Lord's Supper accesses the iconographic tradition of Christianity and asks for contemporary ignition.

Cathedral of St. Jacob in Innsbruck
The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their love of honors and pleasures, and the priests have become cesspools of impurity. Yes, the priests are asking vengeance, and vengeance is hanging over their heads. Woe to the priests and to those dedicated to God who by their unfaithfulness and their wicked lives are crucifying my Son again! The sins of those dedicated to God cry out towards Heaven and call for vengeance, and now vengeance is at their door, for there is no one left to beg mercy and forgiveness for the people. There are no more generous souls; there is no one left worthy of offering a stainless sacrifice to the Eternal for the sake of the world. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
