Kristo Manila, the annual Lenten art exhibit, is now on its ninth year.


The exhibit, titled “A Heritage of Art in Faith,” focuses on the Resurrection.


“The Resurrection completed the mystery of our salvation and redemption; by His death, Christ freed us from sin, and by His Resurrection He restored to us the most important privileges lost by sin,” writes St. Paul (Romans 4:25). “Since the Resurrection had been promised as the main proof of Christ’s Divine mission, it has a greater dogmatic importance than any other fact” (1 Corinthians 15:14).
