His Last Supper

His life might be described as one that included everything from soup to nuts. Seemingly tormented by demons throughout his sixty years, Andy Warhol would find great solace in his church. As a child,  St. John Chrysostom Byzantine Catholic Church  provided safety to a young Warhola. As an adult, privately, quietly Warhol would return to the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer nearly every day.

Surrounded by a smorgasbord of sex and a  banquet of pornography, the cradle catholic remained at arm’s length from a forgiving Lord.

Was his life complex or did Warhol complicate living? Filled with frailties, hypochondria, lovers, loneliness, assassination attempts on his life, Warhol returned to his faith during the 1980’s with the completion of his “Last Supper” series.
