A non-feminist view of Bohdan Piasecki's Last Supper painting

This was written in May 2006.

I like this painting of the Last Supper. Not because it rewrites the Gospel accounts or hints at the inclusion of women as apostles and as ordained priests....

I like this painting because it portrays a family, God’s family. It foreshadows the great banquet in heaven that is waiting for all of us....

I can imagine one of the children saying, “Let’s eat. I’m hungry.” And Jesus responding, “No, not yet. Let’s wait a little bit longer. Not everyone is here yet.”
