fsspx.news/…/museum-auch-fra… – One of the most ancient examples of Christian art from the Americas was created in 1539 by Aztecs for Franciscan missionaries in Mexico. This image depicts a Eucharistic miracle of the sixth century that took place during a pontifical Mass of Saint Gregory the Great. The miracle occurred in response to the those present who doubted that the bread and wine actually became the Body and Blood of Christ. The image utilizes Aztec techniques of featherwork to beautifully depict this Eucharistic miracle and testifies to the very beginnings of the apostolic efforts in Mexico by the Franciscans. This masterpiece is currently on loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for one year and has been on display since February 26th, 2018.
