zlabya: Woman in medieval garb praying, floating in air; modern old priest looking in on her from interior window (St. Julian)

So, if any of you want to read a sacreligious-to-Christians humor post aboutone of the wilder old-fashioned blonde Jesus devotional paintings it's right here. I love it. Especially as a Catholic who grew up with things like this and then the portrayal of Jesus based on a gorgeous young Borgia in the early Renaissance. (I'll try to find a source for this. Not tonight). Reminds me of the one old lady saying to another in a Catholic gift shop, as they considered various nativity scenes, "I don't know if I like a dark-haired baby Jesus."

I want this as an icon for when I post about Christians, or me, doing weird/crazy things that would make Jesus eye roll.
