NEW DIRECTIONS: 

July 2005

 

 

The image of Our Lady of the Victory of Malaga is by the Potosi painter Luis Nino (fl. 1716–1758). The image uses various traditional Inca motifs. When the viewer links the crescent moon at the Virgin's feet to the vertical lines above it, the resulting form takes on the profile of an Inca ceremonial knife (tumi). It is also thought to resemble the shape of ceremonial pins work by Inca princesses.

New Directions Parish Directory
 

In the March issue of New Directions, an article in 30 Days suggested that the Revd Christina Beardsley, prior to her sex change, had conducted same-sex liturgies in the parish of which she was then vicar.

The Revd Beardsley has pointed out that this was never the case, and we are happy to set the record straight, and offer a full and sincere apology for any embarrassment which may have been caused to her as a result of this.
