Matt Talbot included in a Station of the Cross
In the new St. Mary Magdalen Church in Media, Pennsylvania, the Stations of the Cross include an image of Matt Talbot in Station III.
As the site indicates, “The Stations of the Cross, each incorporating a saintly person, invite us to partner with Jesus and the saints as they assist us in ou rdaily lives. These paintings were inspired by our pastor, Father Ralph Chieffo, and painted by artist Robert McGovern specifically for our church.”
III - Jesus falls the first time
(Blessed Matt Talbot)
Contrary to the artist's label, Matt Talbot is presently “Venerable,” not “Blessed,” which requires a miracle attributed to his intercession.
