8) The Consecration of the Bread


The Word made Flesh. Notre Dame in Paris. Scroll down to read more about the part of the Mass and the church!


Original oil painting on a wood-backed linen panel. Printed on matte archival paper in a variety of sizes.



The Consecration. Dramatic, Otherworldly. Silent. Awesome.

The poised moment when the Pieta is offered once again to God. The death of Jesus as propitiation for our sins. By His blood we are redeemed.

The Host blends with the statue, hovering right below the hand of Christ. He almost touches it, points to it. Even in this visage of His death we see the connection made plain.

The angels sorrow over the death of God. Mary makes intercession for us, moving our heart to pity and conversion.

The three time chiming of the bells is the only sound in the church. The Host has become the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity and in this moment we the laity adore our God.


The church in this painting is Notre Dame in Paris, France. Since it burned, I have no idea if there even is Mass yet, but when I saw this image of the pieta altar I fell in love.

Painted as an illustration for Kimberly Fries’ book: Traditional Latin Mass: A Missal for Children found here: https://amzn.to/3FnasK0

(For the Latin Mass loving Catholics checking for Churches to go to, let me know what they celebrate. Fun fact about this image, it’s the only church in this series that I have not been to, so I have no idea.)


Beautiful 11″x14″, 8″x10″, or  5″x7″. I have a new print shop is making these prints and they are beautiful. Unlike my older prints, they are on matte archival paper, and for the moment, all will be drop shipped so it will arrive to you faster.

Printed on high quality 100% cotton paper on an ink pigment based inkjet printer, this print is of archival quality and as such will not fade or deteriorate even 100 years later.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
