Painting: Raphael's Marriage of the Virgin

#FAB Backstory

Standing in front of Raphael's masterpiece, Marriage of the Virgin, Francesco's meditation of the painting was interrupted by a cosmic collision. 20-year-old Clare, also captivated by the work of the great Renaissance artist, stepped back and fell into Francesco's arms. Ironically, 40-year-old Francesco was the virgin - not the younger Clare. He had saved himself for her - across the lonely and patient years. They were married in 30 days.

Clare was everything he had hoped for - kindness, intelligence, creativity, modesty, compassion, optimism, and a selfless readiness to be helpful. Her inexhaustible joie de vivre enchanted Francesco endlessly. She was a perfect woman in his eyes.

Francesco was also everything Clare had hoped for - a generous and gentle man of fortitude, justice, courage, decisive intelligence, scientific intellect, patience and faith. He was a teacher, a protector, a provider, and a leader. He was a man as a man should be.

Concept art for Francesco. Made years ago.

EXCERPT

Francesco slipped off the bed to the floor. He crawled to the living room on his stomach as he often did – it was a way for him to get his mind off the pain. On a level of 1 to 10, the pain was a 15. And no one knew. The pain, however, was not constant; it came in two or three hour doses and it only came a few times a month.

Francesco also experienced other symptoms of MS: bouts of numbness of his hands and feet, dizziness, tremors and stiffness in his hands, and attacks of depression. He had kept his MS diagnosis a secret for ten years. Not even Clare knew – he believed her breast cancer was burden enough for her to carry.

Zombies, machetes and permadeath in a dark dystopian virtual reality game reminds us of Shakespeare’s midsummer regret – that the course of true love never did run smooth. But this is not cause to abandon all hope. Scripture tells us without trepidation - Love never fails...
