Robert Parigi Commissions a Painting by Terrance Lindall

Madonna of the Monsters
Terrance Lindall

Writer, producer, and directer Robert Parigi recently contacted Terrance Lindall to commission a painting, and after several discussions by email, Mr. Parigi suggested the following:
Here is the idea that occurred to me for the painting: The Madonna of the Monsters. A fictional (?) saint of monsters, who would have some such prayer...

Our Lady of Monsters, pray for us!
Intercede for us with the creator of Light and Dark, the Master who wrote the Law and gave us Liberty; the Sovereign who lets us do as we please, the Judge who forgives us; the Reaper who planted a taste for horror in our minds so as to win over our hearts.
Have pity on madmen and madwomen! For no monsters exist in the sight of Him who alone invented them, and who knows how they invented themselves.
Parigi adds that this was "stolen and revised without permission from Baudelaire" - a feat that I admire since I did much the same in a passage of my novella The Bottomless Bottle of Beer.

Anyway, Mr. Parigi and Terrance are speculating about further collaboration, but this might remain pie-in-the-sky since both are very busy men.

I'll let you all know if anything down to earth comes of their speculations.

Well this is the origin of the practice of setting aside a day to honor mothers monster?

The Encyclopedia Britannica says: “A festival derived from the custom of mother worship in ancient Greece. Formal mother worship, with ceremonies to Cybele, or Rhea, the Great Mother of the Gods, were performed on the Ides of March throughout Asia Minor.”—(1959), Vol. 15, p. 849.
And also an ancestress, since Adam’s wife Eve was also 666-progentor of the world political kingdoms “the mother of everyone living” or Mother of Monster!(Ge 3:20;)/ And Babylon the Great is pictured in Revelation, chapter 17, as a ''prostitute woman''-(Mother of Monster again!) and as a city, with daughters. These are organizations springing from the mother organization. Dependent on her, they will fall to destruction with her.
Therefore, everything base on Bible Prophecy!

Your humble brother;Bienvenido Bones
