Weeks of Moses: The Painting

 

During these weeks we meditate upon the end of time and the last Judgment to follow. The Son of man appears in His glory (wings of fire) and sits in the Judgment Seat with the Book of Life in His hand. He sends His angels and gathers all from the depths. The righteous dressed in white indicating their purity of heart and with olive branches and crowns symbolizing their victory stand on the right side. The damned, incapable to look at His Face, stand turning away from Him.
