|1. The Visit of the Magi
And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshipped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold, frankincense and myrrh. (Matthew 2:11)
|2. The Baptism of Jesus
In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptised by John in the Jordan. And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens opened and the Spirit descending upon him like a dove; and a voice came from heaven: “Thou art my beloved Son; with thee I am well pleased.” (Mark 1:9 -11)
|3. Let the little children come to me
And they were bringing children to him, that he might touch them; and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it he was indignant, and said to them: “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:13 – 14)
|4. The Sermon on the Mount
Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain ………… And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth…” (Matthew 5:1 – 5)
|5. The Agony in the Garden
“Father, if thou art willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done.” And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed the more earnestly; and his sweat became as great drops of blood falling down upon the ground. (Luke 22:42 – 44)
|6. Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene
Jesus said to her: “Woman why are you weeping? Whom do you seek?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him: “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” Jesus said to her: “Mary”. She turned and said to him in Hebrew: “Rabboni” (which means Teacher). (John 20:15 – 16).
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
The purpose of the Harry Clarke Artist in Residency Programme is to assist individual artists in their careers, support and provide a focus for artists while they in turn contribute to the local community in the form of workshops and involvement in the arts at a local level.
