“Receive the Holy Spirit”_7th Station of the Resurrection by avonnhartung

Reproduction of original painting “Receive the Holy Spirit” from the series of 14 Stations of the Resurrection, “Via Lucis” by avonnhartung. The cruciform frame shows the nail holes from the Crucifixion of Jesus the Christ. Here we see the disciples now know it is their Risen Lord. They have seen him before, they have eaten with him and here they are in deep devotion as Christ blows the Holy Spirit on them, giving them the power to forgive sins. The water jugs symbolize their baptism. The rooster crows as a sign of fulfillment, of completion. The lilies are a sign of the purity of the eleven apostles and the blessing of the Father.
