Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Rome exhibit works of the Jewish painter who was inspired by the Apocalypse of St. John

2016-05-14


The horrors of World War II did not extinguish the muses that inspired Imre Ámos, a Hungarian painter and Jew who reflects the wound of the greatest conflict in the history of humanity.

The most significant part of his work was shown at the Hungarian Academy of Rome at the exhibition "Painter of Revelation.”

He devoted his last stage to the apocalypse, wielding the brush when he was not forced to take up arms during the Second World War. It was then that the texts of Saint John began to inspire his work.

"Through these pictures, we see the spiritual development of Imre Ámos which surely gives a great testimony of his humanity. Judaism is an organic part of his painting, not only in biblical elements, but also in the tradition of Hungarian Hasidism, strongly present throughout his painting."

Imre Ámos died very young. At 37 or 38 years old, he disappeared forever after being deported to the German concentration camp of Ohrdruf. It took 30 years for his work to be valued and seen by others, after it was kept at home by his wife.

The painter may have saved his life if he had listened to the French Marc Chagall and had not returned to Hungary. His friendship with the French painter, along with other artists, largely influenced his style.

"In his style, you can see similarities with the great Hungarian painters of his time. It is no coincidence, because he went to the same Academy. We found all the same sites as their Hungarian teachers, but that is also the style of the nineteenth century, European modernism and expressionism.”

It is a style representing his religious beliefs, with recurring angels and works that are intimately intertwined with the misadventures of his life.
