Title:Breakfast on the Beach
Notes:Peter Koenig is a Catholic artist whose goal in life is “to paint the drama, romance and poetry of the sacred book” ( In this scene, Jesus is patiently waiting on the shore with bread, fish, and wine while a few of his disciples reel in a large net full of fish. The men are clearly struggling with the weight of the haul but as the gospel passage states, “the net was not torn.” The disciples recognize Jesus and sit down for a hearty breakfast with the resurrected Christ. With this story and painting, we are reminded of the divine mystery in which we participate when we practice similar communion with our fellow humans.
