Christianity is not about Rituals and Belief in Miracles or Being Virtuous, but it is about De-narcissization of the Human Psyche (A Return to a Positive Humility of the Human Condition) Father Nazario is a genuine and an intelligent believer in Christ.

Little Children’s Belief in Love and Adult’s Belief in Power Nolde in his “Christ and Children” goes as much against the iconic tradition of painting Christ as he turns away from the painterly secular tradition of representation of the protagonist’s figure.
