Have faith?

“Four of the most ambitious, striking and costly works of religious art commissioned by a British cathedral in the last 50 years will be revealed in St Paul’s this evening.”

The 22ft high paintings are to be placed centre stage on the walls at the head of the nave, near the dome.

The dean of St Paul’s Dr. John Moses hopes the paintings “will appeal to people that believe that we live in a pretty tormented world.”

Well yes, the world that we live in is pretty tormented, but I thought that religious people sought comfort in their faith and sacred places of worship, away from the tormented world; I wonder whether such people will be able to see what is comforting in this costly work of religious art.
