With over 500 origami butterflies contributed by students, staff, families, and gradeschool classrooms, the project was a success. Thanks to all who helped, it looks beautiful! The MVL Spring Sacred Concert was wonderful as usual. It's so beautiful to see young people come together and express their faith in such a beautiful and edifying way.
Here is a copy of the related text that printed in the MVL Spring Sacred concert program:
The artwork for this concert is the product of cooperation among many members of the MVL family. The idea was to create an image of Jesus Christ crucified out of many origami butterflies. An appeal for help in folding butterflies went out online and about 500 origami butterflies were created by gradeschoolers, parents, MVL students, faculty and staff.
"So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body." -1 Corinthians 15:42-44
