The art of politics and the politics of art . The betrayal .


Judas led the wild crowd of the Jews in the garden , where he identified Christ with a kiss. After the kiss , Judas Jesus looked into his eyes and said, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss? " (Luke 22:48 ) .

The betrayal of Judas was so evil, so evil , that one of the fathers of the church had this to say : "It would have been better for the world, especially for the children of God , that Judas was alone in his transgression, that there had been no unfair other people besides him . " In other words, it would have been good if there had been only a Judas .

But the truth is that the world is full of people like
Judas! The church still bears witness to the betrayal of Jesus Christ ,
every day . The spirit of Judas is still very much alive in the hearts of
many former followers of Christ, is alive within the very walls of our Italy .

I want to make a frank and direct question: Could you be a traitor to Christ and not realizing it ? You sold and I have betrayed Jesus ? Traitors are those who were once loyal to the one who betray . Only those who are within the group can be traitors. In the great book of the history of art there are many works that tell what happened to Christ, the kiss of Judas, and how teaching those masterpieces (Giotto , Caravaggio paintings, Ugolino Di Nerio , etc ... ) give us even in our days, the politics of our day. And Christ said on the cross : " Father, forgive them for they know not what they do" . And the Gospels tell us that after these words , Christ died bowed his head , and then Caravaggio Conversion of Saint Paul rise again after three days.
